Alessandro Foresti

Graduated in Organ and Organ Composition at the “L. Marenzio” of Darfo BT (BS), Alessandro perfected himself under the guidance of maestro Enrico Viccardi. Alessandro has an intense history of teaching and concert activity in Italy and abroad.

Since 1994 he has been collaborating permanently with the Hope Singers, a choir specialized in the performance of gospel music.
With the same group Alessandro embarks on a new musical journey to discover Jewish music by researching, transcribing and harmonizing the evocative Yiddish repertoire for choir and instruments.

As organist, composer and director of the Santa Cecilia choir, he takes care of the music in the liturgy of the parish of Tavernola Bergamasca.
Alessandro is the founder of the group “Sestotono” with which he mainly plays Eastern European music.

Marcello has been a teacher of our workshops since the first editions.
