Daniel Ferro's Legacy

In a career that stretched across five continents, six decades, and included decorations by three governments for his extraordinary contributions to the arts, Daniel Ferro has taught some of opera's most legendary voices. He counted among his students many who have become successful teachers at leading concervatories and universities worldwide.

"We spend all our lives trying to find the right tone...
I say forget the tone...Find yourself, and then you can sing."

"You have only two jobs to do as a performer...Make me laugh...make me cry."

-Daniel Ferro
