Peter has invited Maestro Marcello Giordano Pellegrino, from Sicily, to teach an Italian opera course in London.  Peter will convene the course and teach some non-singing parts of the course.  Maestro Pellegrino has many years experience both as a singer and a singing teacher and will coach the group on the technical, interpretative and stage aspects of delivering fine Italian opera arias.  There are just 12 places available on the course (in order to keep a powerful learning environment) ... if you know anyone interested please this on to them.  It is suitable for singers at all stages of their careers.
