Antonio Giuliano, one of Pensacola’s most ardent fans and eminent PJC graduates, performs as part of Pensacola Junior College’s Lyceum series 7:30 p.m. Oct. 21 and 22 at the Ashmore Fine Arts Auditorium.
Sgt. 1st Class Giuliano, a member of the U.S. Army Chorus since 1988, has represented his country worldwide, performing as a soloist to packed houses and standing ovations. He has performed for heads of state worldwide and served as soloist at the funeral services for President Ronald Reagan.
Off duty, he has excelled in lead roles with Opera Bel Canto, serving as principal tenor in its production of “Petite Messe Solennelle.” He performed a duet concert late May in Washington D.C., including excerpts from “La Traviata,” “Lucia di Lammermoor” and Puccini’s “Tosca” and “La BohŠme.”
The late tenor Franco Corelli compared the young Giuliano with Lanza. When Giuliano made his Italian recital debut in Como, Italy, in 1992, he was invited to study voice with Corelli at his home in Milano.
Tickets cost $12 and can be purchased at the Lyceum box office in the Ashmore Auditorium. VISA, MasterCard, cash or check accepted. Reservations by phone are charged to a credit card at the time of order.
