Soprano Claudia Tabone conferred music award
Soprano Claudia Tabone was conferred a music award by the San Lawrenz Festa Committee.
The committee annually confers an award upon a young Gozitan who has distinguished themselves in the field of music.
The committee's aim in awarding such a prestigious honour is to recognize the important efforts being made by talented young Gozitans despite the limitations of living on an island.
Ms Tabone started her music education in her native Gozo at an early age and took up voice studies in Malta with mezzo-soprano Claire Massa. Upon graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Malta, she moved to Milan, Italy, to broaden her studies at the prestigious Conservatorio di Musica “Giuseppe Verdi” with Giovanna Canetti and is now under the direction of Juliette Bisazza.
Meanwhile she attended master classes in Malta and Italy with important artists and coaches such as Carlo Ventura, Daniel Lichti, Thomas Bauer and Patrizia Morandini. Claudia Tabone appears regularly in performance and has often been cast opposite artists of international repute, always attaining a good success with public and critics alike.
Her stage and concert engagements have included Puccini’s La Bohème (Musetta), Bizet’s Carmen (Frasquita), Verdi’s Aïda (Sacerdotessa), Britten’s The Little Sweep (Rowan), and Purcell’s Did.
She will be performing the role of Donna Eleonora in Salieri’s opera Prima la musica e poi le parole this September.
