BiographyLuca Cervoni was born in 1982 in Tivoli near Rome. He began taking private singing lessons, and later continued his studies at the Musical Conservatory of S. Cecilio in Rome under the leadership of the baritone Walter Alberti and recently was a student of the soprano Delie Surrat.
For several years now, he has been working with a variety of musical groups that focus on research into Medieval and contemporary music. In Modena he performed in the solo tenor part of Vivaldi’s Dixit Dominus and in Mozart‘s Waisenhaus-Messe. In Rome he actively takes part in productions by the ensemble La cappella Musicale di Trinità dei monti, with whom he has performed as a soloist at the palace in Versailles. He additionally sings with the Accademia degli Ottoboni, with the ensemble Concerto Romano, and with La Schola di S.Vitale, both of which are directed by Alessandro Quarta, with whom he was the protagonist of various modern-day productions of rediscovered treasures of the Roman Baroque era.
In Mantova, on the occasion of the four hundred year anniversary of Monteverdi’s Orfeo (in February of 2006), he was selected as one of the winners of the international Orfeo competition which is administered under the patronage of UNESCO. The chair of the jury was the soprano Raina Kabaiwanska. Thanks to this victory, Luca Cervoni was invited to sing the part of the Second Shepherd in a production under the direction of Roberto Gini in the Teatro del Bibiena.Update: April 2007
