Fabio Bernoni, Conductor

Fabio Bernoni At a very young age, he sang in the children’s chorus at the Rome Opera House for a period of five years. His love of music led him to study composition and conducting with M° Nicola Samale.

In 1989 he attended lessons given by M° Leonard Bernstein at the “Accademia Nazionale di S.Cecilia” in Rome. He pursued his studies with M° Donato Renzetti and received a diploma at the Academy of Music in Pescara.
