About Peter F.

In my over 30 years of professional experience, I have sung in New York (“A magesterial tenor…” is how The New York Times’ Anthony Tommasini described me), Boston, Denver, Santa Fe, Lisbon, Toronto, Milan, Lugo, Pilsen, Dortmund and Berlin, to name a few.

For 15 years I have also maintained a voice studio - teaching opera, Lied, songs, as well as some jazz and pop - in both Berlin and in Italy. Lately, I have expanded my experience to teaching through both Zoom and SoundJack.

I earned a Master's of Music from the Hartt School of Music (Connecticut, USA) and a Bachelor's of Music from the University of Massachusetts. My experiences at the university led me to sing music from Léonin and Pérotin through Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic and modern music. Prior to that I sang in a jazz ensemble and in a rock band (where I also played bass).

I am also the creator and co-founder of the acclaimed Berlin Wagner Gruppe which presents complete performances of Wagner's works in concert and semi-staged format and offers singers the opportunity to study, rehearse and perform a full Wagner role with a full cast.

Besides English, I speak Italian and German.

In addition to singing opera and teaching, I am also in demand as a concert soloist for orchestra and for Liederabend concerts, with recent appearances in Belgium, Italy, the USA and throughout Germany.

In 2017, I was featured on the critically acclaimed CD of Das Lied von der Erde. I can also be found singing the role of Don Gomez in Weber's Die Drei Pintos which was recorded at Wexford Festival Opera.

Peter not only was super friendly and made me secure in just a few minutes, but he gave me great advice to help fix some technical issues as a tenor. Actually I got my first role in Berlin thanks to his recommendation.
