Christopher Macchio

Celebrated New York Tenor, Christopher Macchio, reminds us of Mario Lanza. A trained classical tenor from Manhattan School of Music, his growing reputation has brought him sold-out theaters and events in the U.S. and Europe.

Fanyong Du

Fanyong Du, lyric tenor, was born in Inner Mongolia. From 2003 to 2013, he lived in Ukraine, the only student from China brought to the Odessa National Academy of Music by the late Elvira Letyagina. Last August, Mr. Du made his debut at the China National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing as Harry in La fanciulla del West. Other recent roles include Rodolfo in La bohème, at New York's International Vocal Arts Institute and Colorado's Crested Butte Music Festival, and Lensky in the 2019 Eurasia Festival's Eugene Onegin at the Kaufman Music Center in New York, about which OperaWire wrote: "His firm, malleable voice carried sufficient sweetness… creating a romantic yet leisurely atmosphere which intensified as needed. These passionate risings peaked with a high B-flat as Du returned to a gentler dynamic."

Mr. Du has sung at Lincoln Center at the 2016 Licia Albanese-Puccini Foundation gala and at Carnegie Hall at the 2017 Giuseppe Giacomini gala. Among his competition honors are Third Prize in 2016 and Second Prize in 2017 in the Gerda Lissner Foundation Competition in New York and Second Prize in the 2017 Concorso Lirico Internazionale "Anita Cerquetti" in Montecosaro, Italy.

After earning bachelor's and master's degrees in Odessa, Mr. Du completed professional studies diplomas at Manhattan School of Music, studying with Mignon Dunn, and at Mannes School of Music, studying with Arthur Levy. Opera News praised the "real sense of bel canto style" and "perfectly executed messa di voce" of his 2015 appearance as Nemorino in L'elisir d'amore at Mannes. Mr. Du has also performed in master classes of Renato Bruson and Giuseppe Sabbatini in Italy, as a soloist in Rossini's Stabat Mater in Switzerland and in Canada, Russia, Czechia and Slovakia.
