British tenor Alessandro Fisher was a Choral Scholar at Clare College, Cambridge where he studied Modern and Mediaeval Languages. He continued his musical studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He won the 2016 Kathleen Ferrier Award, was an Associate Artist of Classical Opera and is currently a BBC New Generation Artist.
He has sung with a number of opera companies in England including West Green Opera, Brampton Opera and at Garsington. He sang the role of Fenton in Falstaff at Grange Park Opera which won him warm reviews for his 'supple tenor' and 'ardent tone.’
His performance at a 2019 Prom reached a worldwide audience when he and the pianist Stephen Hough gave a recital of songs composed by Prince Albert for Queen Victoria in which he ‘sang mellifluously’.
Future engagements include a series of concerts in Utrecht and Amsterdam with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra.
He will take part in the annual Kirker Music Festival on Ischia in October this autumn.
