Featuring: Peter Giradot: Tenor & Maria Fassio Pignati: Soprano & Simona Snitkovskaya, piano

Peter Girardot was born in London, England. It was not until he immigrated to Canada, however, that he started studying voice seriously.

The Royal Conservatory of Music of Toronto recognized his potential as a promising young tenor and granted him scholarships for four consecutive years. During this period he also performed with the Toronto Opera Festival and Canadian Broadcasting System.

After moving to California, Peter soon became affiliated with West Bay Opera. His first appearance with them was as Don Jose in Carmen. His rich, expressive voice established his reputation as a sensitive musician and highly trained singer. The next season saw his return as Pinkterton in Madama Butterfly.

San Francisco Opera Tenor for 30 years, Peter Girardot, has performed with Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and many others.

Soprano, Maria Fassio Pignati,
(picture right) a native San Franciscan, started singing when she was two, began studying piano when she was eight years old, and taught piano for several years.  The lyric soprano graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Lone Mountain College, and was an extension student at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, studying voice with Robert Bernard and piano with Margarete Thomsen. Maria has performed as a soloist on local Italian television, on the East and West coasts and in Italy, and is a member of the “Trio Amore” operatic group, which has released a CD of Italian love songs.  She has sung for the Golden State Warriors, the San Francisco Giants, and the Oakland A’s, and has performed before a Vice-President and President of the United States, two presidents of Italy, and Mother Teresa.  In 2015 Maria was bestowed the title of “Commendatore” (Knight Commander) by the President of Italy for her music and work in the Italian community.

Simona Snitkovskaya, piano, is a native of St. Petersburg, where she received the equivalent of her Ph.D. in music at the Conservatory, specializing in chamber music and accompaniment. Before her arrival in California, she worked at the renowned Marinksy Theater as vocal coach and house pianist.  For the past 10 years, she has been affiliated with Opera San José, where is a vocal coach, rehearsal pianist and Russian diction expert.
