Have not posted since 2018. Very unusual busy time and wonderful moments. More to come, but this was some of the highlights in between. May I just say that sharing music with an audience is one of the great privileges of any career. Every time is so unique and precious. My debt with the NYCO […]
First chance in forever to sit and contemplate the lovely summer I just had…. so much service to music and so much opportunity to help and then the added gift of being able to sing…. I had never hoped to make London one of the glorious cities I had a love affair with the public, […]
A strange and bittersweet end to 2017, with so much emotion and so many friends having crossed, I cannot comprehend the losses.….. My beloved friend and voice guide, one of the greatest people I will ever have known or will know, Madame Rita Patanè passed away after a short illness but it was not expected […]
Opera Niagara was a huge revelation to me….so important to help those young talents to use immediately what they learn in studio and in the furnace of the performance help them stay calm to allow it to polish their diamond…..superb….. loved the productions and the performances….. terrific from Maria Vetere and Joel Ricci in […]
This Summer is filled with interesting musical evenings for me, beginning with a recital for the newly launched Amici della Lirica di Città Delle Pieve and its founder, Raffaella Franci, figlia d’arte, because yes she is the granddaughter of Italian great Benvenuto Franci and the daughter of Maestro Carlo Franci. A highly acclaimed photographer with many expositions of her evocative photographs, she has begun this most worthy group and has invited me to the glorious city of Città delle Pieve to give a recital. So my summer begins in recital among the sunflowers with great friends, Vincenzo Scalera who is to be my “orchestra” and he is without a doubt one of the great piano collaborators in the world today and I am really thrilled to make music with him…… I also am so proud to present two extraordinary young singers, the lush velvet voice of a true Italian beauty […]
For years I listened to a fabulous two disc set of Rosa Ponselle called the Villa Pace Recordings. In them, she recorded, sometimes playing for herself, songs and arias she always wanted to sing.. I thought how magnificent, and it occurred to me that I might have some fun, get my mind off the political horror of today, and cloak myself in the mantle of music, surround myself in new roles, make music with wonderful new friends and old friends, in new chances to share my voice with those that enjoy it, and as such, I am proud to announce that coming out in September will be a gathering of at least nine new pieces, in the Aprile Millo~The Sanctuary Sessions. It is to be recorded mostly in Toronto’s beautiful Trinity Saint Paul’s United- which has a gorgeous place to record […]

To the world evolved….evolving. Then came November 8th, 2016. Woke up in some bad Oliver Stone movie of epic horrible nightmare proportions . How does one equate what is currently unfolding in our world today? We are told by a manipulated press, “This is all so different…so unprecedented!” …exciting word to use…makes it seem special, wonderful….it’s not in this regard. Normalizing racism…Bigotry………Blatant disrespect for rules and regulations… That same press created this Frankenstein…. for ratings. And now its walking….. “it’s ALIVE” […]
Opera Legend Aprile Millo Releases Single, ‘AVE MARIA (For the Children of Haiti)’ to Benefit Victims of Hurricane in Haiti Classical Music News Desk Dec. 9, 2016 Tweet Opera Legend Aprile Millo Releases Single, ‘AVE MARIA (For the Children of Haiti)’ to Benefit Victims of Hurricane in Haiti Opera legend Aprile Millo has teamed up with dynamic young soprano Maria Vetere for a new holiday release, a new AVE MARIA to benefit the victims of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti.

He suggested Millo record a spiritual prayer in song, a special AVE MARIA for the holidays, with 100% of […]
Seeds that grow into an oak…. dreams that run into reality….. so it is we are preparing to return once again to Italy to begin a new our search for the best in ourselves and in the glorious music left to us by master composers and librettists…. Courage to delve deeply and get beyond fear to deliver onstage, the soul of a human being who’s every heart beat is left in the notes on that manuscript which translate into stunning mirrors for our own emotions and heartbeats. A human to human connection that cannot be beat, measured in earthly mortal terms…. such is the possibility, such is the desired result. Striving now to secure sponsorship enough to offer partial scholarships, and depending on the success of our efforts, even total scholarships to many talented young voices. Money when it comes to art is vulgar to even think about, but we […]
