Italian tenor Marco Fiorante will perform at the Dec. 12 meeting of the Murrysville AAUW at the Murrysville Community Library.

The American Association of University Women’s Murrysville chapter will host Italian singer Marco Fiorante at its Dec. 12 meeting for a special holiday program.

Born in Cellino San Marco in Italy’s Puglia region, Fiorante completed his musical study in “canto lirico” (“opera performance”) at the Conservatorio Tito Schipa in Lecce, Italy. He has performed at several national events in his home country, he has sung the Italian national anthem at a 2012 U.S. Justice Department ceremony honoring FBI founder Charles Joseph Bonaparte and at the recent National Italian American Foundation’s gala dinner in Washington, D.C.

Fiorante’s second album, “Love” was released in 2016. He has a strong connection to the Pittsburgh area, having married a Pittsburgh resident as well as having started an Italian school in 2018 in Beaver, offering language lessons for adults and children. Fiorante also organizes customized tours to Italy.

The association’s business meeting will take place at 9:30 a.m., followed by Fiorante’s Italian Christmas program at 10 a.m., at the community room of the Murrysville Community Library, 4130 Sardis Road in Murrysville.

The public is invited to attend, and there is no registration required.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
