Peter Mark - Manhattan, NY
Having sung myself onstage with the great singers at the MET, and chosen, coached, and conducted hundreds of singers for over 4 decades at Virginia Opera -- where I am Artistic Director Emeritus -- I really know how to work quickly and effectively with singers to get their voices to ring freely and to communicate expressively and musically. QUICKLY and SUCCESSFULLY!
Peter Mark’s powerful skill set draws from a varied and comprehensive experience in opera. As Founding General and Artistic Director of Virginia Opera he conducted and mentored young singers -- many who have become world renowned stars like Renee Fleming, Diana Soviero, Lawrence Brownlee, Frederick Burchinal.
