ITALIAN AMERICAN OPERA FOUNDATION (IAOF) was created with the aspiration to develop a cultural bridge between Italy and the United States. IAOF was formed to unite the most talented young Opera singers and musicians in an ensemble that transcends cultural and geographical boundaries – all in the common pursuit of musical excellence and to create a community for their families and the people that support their passion for music. The purpose of the Foundation is to rekindle a passion for Opera by bringing large productions and Master Classes to United States and with them a taste of Italy, its culture, arts, and style.
Italian Conductor STEFANO VIGNATI was born in Rome (Italy) and made his debut in the United States in February of 1998. Stefano studied music, composition, and conducting extensively and received high honors. Upon finishing his education, Stefano began his professional career in Italy and eventually worldwide enlarging his area of experience.
