Biography




The organ recitals of David Troiano have garnered notice for their clean performances, musicality, and interesting repertoire. He has appeared throughout the United States, Canada, Italy, Portugal, Sweden, Poland, Lithuania (’16) and four tours in Finland with Baroque Violinist Tapani Yriola. He has also appeared in several of the great sacred spaces of Mexico including two appearances at LA BASILICA in Mexico City.

With particular focus and interest in the music of the Spanish Baroque and the Spanish-speaking world, he has given lecture/recitals at AGO Regional Meetings; Symposiums on Spanish and Latin American Music (Almeria, Spain 2010 and 2016; Tucson 2009, 2011, 2013); and has provided a recording for FIMTE which honored the 500th Anniversary of Antonio Cabezon. Always interested in new sounds for the Organ, he has commissioned and premiered several new works: TAU by Mexican Composer and Physician Armando Torres; OBSESSIONEERING by American Composer Armando Bayolo; HYMN SUITE by Gilbert Martin; and MISSION BELLS by Miguel Del Aguila of Uruguay/California.

He received the Doctorate of Musical Arts Degree from the University of Michigan where he trained under the legendary Marilyn Mason with Harpsichord studies and the brilliant Harpsichordist Edward Parmentier. Dr. Troiano currently serves St. Clare of Montefalco Parish in Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan as Director of Liturgical Music.

David Troiano has been praised for the beauty of his voice, attention to musical detail and strong characterizations. His Lyric Tenor voice has been heard in a substantial amount of stage roles in Opera and Operetta (including Zarzuela) in addition to orchestral concerts. His dedication to American Art Song has been heard in over Eighty-five recitals to great acclaim throughout the United States and abroad. With the COMIC OPERA GUILD of Ann Arbor, he has recorded nearly Fifty premiere CD’s of the little-known stage works of Herbert, Kern, Sousa, and others. Other highlights include the world premier recording of a Christmas Pastorale by Paul Paray in which he can be heard as the Narrator. In 2006, he was a participant at the Festival of Spanish and Latin American Art Song Festival in Barcelona. In 2010, he performed as the tenor soloist with the St. John’s Boychoir of Warsaw on their American Tour. This included a recital at the Marcela Sembrich Museum in Bolton Landing, New York. Mr. Troiano earned the Master of Arts Degree in Voice Performance from Wayne State University where he currently teaches as an Adjunct Professor of Voice.

Choral conducting responsibilities have included direction for Musicals at the Bonstelle Theater (WSU), and for several seasons with community and semi-professional theaters in Michigan. Since 1997 he has served as the Choral Director for the International Symphony Orchestra Association whose repertoire is primarily from the major Oratorios and other concert works. From 2007 to 2008 he was the musical director for the FILARETS Chorus, a Polish-language chorus that has been involved in the Detroit area for over 80 years. Under his direction, the chorus won First Place in both the Mixed and Men’s Division at the National Convention held in May 2014. Currently, he serves as Assistant National Choral Director for the Polish Singers Alliance of America. Since 2010, Troiano has been seen (alternating with performing) on the podium with the COG in presenting several rarely-heard operettas with recordings for the Guild.

Sergio Lamberto






A teacher at the Turin Conservatory, Sergio Lamberto has served as principal violinist in the Bolzano-Trento Haydn Orchestra as well as the Turin Chamber Orchestra and Turin Philharmonic. He performs on the Stradivarius once played by Italian violinist Teresina Tua—whose playing inspired Edvard Grieg to compose his third violin sonata, featured in this program. Pianist Giacomo Fuga, senior professor of piano at the Verdi Conservatory in Turin, has given solo and chamber performances in Paris, Graz, Geneva, Tokyo, Turin, Milan, and Rome, and is a member of the award-winning Trio di Torino.

Lamberto studied at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Turin, continuing with Corrado Romano in Geneva and with Franco Gulli at the Siena Accademia Chigiana. He won first prize at the Vittorio Veneto National Violin Competition. He served as principal violinist in the Bolzano and Trento Haydn Orchestra and from 1982 to 1991 with the Turin Chamber Orchestra, followed by engagement in the same position with the Turin Philharmonic Orchestra and as soloist with the strings of the Turin Philharmonic. He has appeared as soloist, first violin and concertmaster with the Abruzzo and Sanremo symphony orchestras, the German ensemble Musiké, the Lisbon Festival Orchestra and the Milan Cantelli Orchestra. From 1987 he has served as violinist with the prizewinning Turin Trio, which has appeared widely in countries throughout the world. He has made several recordings.

He has also performed at The White House, was Concertmaster of the orchestra at Lyric Opera of Chicago, and has served as concertmaster and soloist with a number of other local orchestras.

Henry completed his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees with honors from Chicago Musical College of Roosevelt University, and studied there under Morris Gomberg. Henry began teaching informally while still in high school, taught at the Chicago Musical College through the 1970s, and has regularly taught privately ever since. He teaches violin and viola through his Moraine Music Academy in Highland Park, Illinois, as well as academic improvement and test preparation. He is also a registered financial advisor with Patrick Mauro Investment Advisor Inc.

Giacomo Fuga






Born in 1962, Giacomo Fuga was awarded his diploma in piano, summa cum laude, at the Conservatorio Verdi in Turin when he was seventeen, followed by studies in composition and orchestral conducting. Prizes in international piano competitions include the Monza Rina Salagallo (1980), the Viotti-Valsesia and the Viotti of Vercelli (1981). His subsequent career as a soloist has brought performances at the Salle Cortot, Paris; the Stefaniensaal, Graz; the Conservatoire, Geneva; the Bunka Kaikan Concert Hall, Tokyo; the RAI Auditorium, Turin; the Sala Verdi, Milan; the auditorium of the Foro Italico of Rome and elsewhere. From 1987 he was a member of the Trio di Torino, winner of first prize in the Vercelli G.B. Viotti International Competition (1990) and second prize at the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in April 1993. In 1995 he was awarded second prize in the quintet category at the Trapani International Chamber Music Competition.

Some Comments from past participants

“Thank you so much for the most amazing tour around St. John Cantius Church. As you know the Church is beautiful itself but the tour we received that truly opened our eyes for the beauty hidden behind. Thank you so so much. And now I think that the story about this holy place is more beautiful than the walls itself”

“Thank you so much for the tour! We learned so much about the people of faith who built this city. What a treasure in the heart of Chicago! We’ll be back for some concerts or Masses for sure.”

“We loved having the tour from the priests. They had so much passion and taught us not only about the church building but what it symbolizes. It was our favorite stop for Open House”

“Thank you for the tour… I really enjoyed learning about the symbolism of the church. I felt I could really relate to the message St. John Cantius passed on with fixing the broken jug. I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the church as well as the beauty in all the symbolism of every painting, sculpture…”

Architecture of St. John Cantius: A Summary

DESIGNED by Adolphus Druiding and completed in 1898, St. John Cantius Church took five years to build and is one of the best examples of sacred architecture in the city. The unique baroque interior has remained intact for more than a century and is known for both its opulence and grand scale—reminiscent of the sumptuous art and architecture of 18th century Krakow. The imposing 130 ft. tower is readily seen from the nearby Kennedy Expressway.

In 2013, St. John’s completed an ambitious restoration, returning the lavish interior to its original splendor. Of all the “Polish cathedrals” in Chicago, St. John’s stands closest to downtown. Located in the heart of Chicago, one mile directly west of the famous Water tower on Chicago Avenue, St. John Cantius Church is easily accessible by car, bus, or subway.

IMG_7625
Together with its school (1903) and rectory (1901), St. John Cantius Church (1893) forms a grand and amazingly intact group of turn of the century architecture.
