Unconventional Singer - AMAT

Unconventional Singers, who are they?

The Unconventional Singers were born in 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, as a vocal group of Amat. After a successful performance in Florence of a cappella music by Dallapiccola, these six friends-colleagues, opera artists, musicians and composers decided to officially form a real group.

With the introduction of two more voices, the group reached its final line-up of eight members in total: Costanza Renai, Francesca Lazzeroni, Keren Or Davidovitch, Floriano D’Auria, Claudio Giovani, Matteo Tavini, Tommaso Corvaja, Dielli Hoxha.

Their music

A versatile, harmonious and chameleonic ensemble, covering all vocal timbres and textures, eight performers of the stage, capable of challenging themselves and their abilities with artistry and irony. Together with Concetta Anastasi, the group’s director, composer and arranger, the Singers are working to bring opera singing out of the classical mold, opening up to the contamination of styles and eras, aiming above all at young audiences. 

They cover all types of repertoire, reinterpreting it with contemporary eyes: classical music, opera, musicals, operetta, with forays into pop, rock and film music.

Their achievements

They collaborate with Italian music corporations, such as the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Festival, as well as foreign ones. 

Their latest foreign appearance saw them performing, last May, in the American temple of music: the New York’s Lincoln Center. A show conceived and constructed by the Unconventional Singers especially for the Big Apple, a mix of Italian and international music (from Sting to Adriano Celentano, from the Trio Lescano to Madonna), arranged mostly by the group to be performed a cappella.

More recently, in august 2022, the group won the Cover Prize at the ‘Promote Your Music’ Tour Contest organized by La Feltrinelli and Fanya di Croce.
