Franco Bertacci is the Artistic Director of the Lyric Orchestra. He is an accomplished singer, conductor, and one of the premier voice instructors alive today. His teaching technique encompasses the "old style" of voice training which produces freedom in the voice and real bel canto singing. His lifelong work is to bring this type of singing back to the opera world where it can engender an appreciation for this extraordinary art form. Visit for more information.
