My first relevant experiance has been with the choir of Accademia
del Santo Spirito, funded by master Sergio
With them I have been trained by Grazia Abbá and Pietro Mussino, and had occasion to sing under direction of Balestracci, Claudio Scimone, Simon Preston, Jean-Claude Malgoire, Piotr Wijatkowski and others.
In 2005 I have been admitted to the school of the Accademia
corale Stefano Tempia, one of the oldest musical
institutions in Turin, of which I am member since 2008.
I have performed under the direction of Massimo Peiretti, Michele Frezza, Guido Maria Guida, Pasquale Valerio, Dario Tabbia, Francesco Cilluffo, Federico Sardelli, Josef Boeck.
I partecipated to the perforamance and record of "Missa in dedicatione Sancti Michaelis Archageli", composed by Enrico Euron. Here is a photo of the absolute first performance in the Sacra di San Michele, in June 2008. In 2010 I took part to the recording of the CD: "Per la Sindone. Musiche di Perosi, Bossi, Renzi, Mathey", directed by Michele Frezza.
For all this my greatest gratitude goes to my singing teacher Magda Koczka. She has advised me
since the times of Santo Spirito, and then while attending to the
courses of the Stefano Tempia singing school, that she directed.
Her deep competence and equally great patience with me have changed an unrealistic ambition into a true passion.
Here are the links to some videos I have found on YouTube:
Franco Barbanera is my best friend, and brother in law. He is a computer scientist and a coauthor of mines. Here he is mentioned because of his musical skill in playing clarinet and many other musical instruments. He is member of the band Nakaira, performing and composing folk music inspired to the Mediterranean culture.
