Featured Singer: Alexandria Vernasco
Do you have a role model that inspired you to go into music?
My Nonno (Italian grandfather) inspired me to get into the arts in general, starting in theater. He always had a lovely voice. My family says I inherited music from my Nonno.
How did you get interested in Early Music?
I sang William Byrd's "Ave Verum Corpus" in what is now Schola Clementis, at St. Clement, several years ago.
How/when did you get involved with Marion Consort?
I knew Melissa Curtis, who knew I loved early music and told me about auditions!
Do you play any instruments in addition to singing?
I dabble in piano and guitar.
Do you have a favorite piece or concert you've sung with Marion Consort?
If I have to pick just one, probably Palestrina's "Exultate Deo"
Anything else you can tell us about yourself or your musical journey?
When I'm not singing, I like to explore jazz rhythms via Tap shoes. It's my second love! (Besides early music....)
