"It [Opera Project Columbus] is a hidden gem that I hope will continue to grow over the years"
I have learned a lot from Alessandro Siciliani's leadership. He is very passionate and knows so much about the operas and that transfers to the orchestra.
"...the life and sincerity he [Maestro Siciliani] brings to the stage is so very rare.”
“Every cell in his [Maestro Siciliani's] body is full of music and it spills over into the musicians. My teaching is enhanced each time I play for him.”
"I have never felt more passionate about working for an organization..."
“It is the talent, energy, passion, vision and the magic of persistent, positive thinking that make organizations like OPC triumph in a society that struggles economically and art fights to stay alive.”
"...a wonderful introduction to opera for our family and friends!"
“There were nights where I was tired and it was a challenge but that first night on stage made all the work worth it. By the time the performances were finished, I realized how much I enjoyed being on stage and have decided to pursue more on-stage opportunities.”
"I also got to meet so many interesting and kind people that I can now call my friends!"
"Maestro Siciliani's infectious passion for opera catches everyone on fire."
