Welcome to my home page. I am a professional  opera singer and I created this site to help people enhance their experience of opera and to share my Italian heritage. I am also pleased to have just released my Christmas CD, The Gifts of a Classical Christmas. Included in the CD are three Italian Christmas songs. You can find out more about it and purchasing information at the CDs & Merchandise Page. 

My public performances are listed in the Live Performances area of this website. My goal is to always connect with my audience, and would love to hear your stories of opera and Italian heritage. Please feel free to email me. 

If you are interested in educational programs for children, please look at my opera programs for children, where I present opera and artistic tradition to children as a way of expressing themselves and and how the rich tradition that has come before them can enhance their lives. I also offer a coloring book about opera.

In addition to my duties as a performer, I maintain a private voice and piano studio. For more information, visit the Voice & Piano Lessons page. Feel free to contact me to set up a trial lesson. Youíll also find information on other types of programs I offer under the Contact Me page, including a lecture-performance series about the History of Italian Opera.

As an Italian American, opera has always been a major part of my life. And Iíve loved singing since I was a child growing up in New Jersey. Please visit often as I share some of those experiences and the richness Italian music gave to my life.

Best Wishes,
Annamaria Stefanelli
