anyone heard of this?

Even after all this time
the sun never says to the earth,
You owe me.

Look what happens with
a love like that.
It lights the whole sky.

I got the e-mail as well. I have gotten other e-mails from that address about Francisco Casanova master classes and coachings with him. I'm assuming it must be someone associated with him, but I could be wrong.

Francisco Casanova is a fantastic teacher

If you are someone who wants to learn vocal technique of the singers from golden age of opera, the way all the greats of Italy sang, then study with Maestro Casanova. He was a hand-picked student of Pier Miranda Ferraro, one of the great Otellos of Europe, and worked with him for 20 years. When I first heard him at the Met in Nabucco, I was blown away. He is great with tenors, other male voices, AND female voices too; he keeps everything grounded in the low larynx position, pure vowels and strong breath support. I've personally heard a couple of his tenors improve their top by 2 notes. He has concentrated my tone and made my voice bigger and richer, all with the three basics mentioned above. He's extremely artistic and intelligent as well, and focuses on the meaning of text. You can contact him through Vera Musica, Ltd. at

I took a coaching/consultation with him, and was blown away. He is the man behind Vera Musica.

not sure exactly what

email you're discussing, but VeraMusica is indeed associated with Francisco Casanova. i don't know the nature of the opportiunity in question (paid vs. pay to sing masterclasses, etc.) but based on my personal experience with him it'd be worth doing in any capacity if the opp. suites your needs.

in addition to being a very dear man who is a great performer with a fabulous voice that really brings old school italian back to life in a way that i'd not personally experienced in a while. he's extremely knowledgable, energetic and generous and it'd be worth your time to work with him as a coach or as a performer for his organization.
