PERFORMANCE:

In this Digital Music Forum exclusive, the captivating Italian-born soprano Giorgia Fumanti will give an on-stage performance followed by a conversation about her career and the business of music. Straddling the line between pop and classical, Giorgia's voice draws comparisons to the operatic-pop style of Andrea Bocelli and the spiritual flair of Enya. Her distinctive style is borne of her compelling interpretations of an eclectic group of composers, from Sting to Bach to Italian film music master Ennio Morricone. This is a session you won't want to miss!
