Giovanni Ferretti is an exceptionally talented operatic tenor, who sings classical opera arias (like nessun dorma), and pop opera (Time to Say Goodbye) and pop ballads (Because We Believe) in the style of Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, Josh Groban and Andrea Bocelli. His shows are fully entertaining, including fun explanations of opera and translations of the songs. A very special singer for very special events!
He will also deliver a singing telegram at your loved one's home or office! Birthdays, wedding anniversaries, first date anniversaries, wedding-day surprises, congratulations!
Everyone at the party enjoyed Giovanni Ferretti. He has a great voice and he's very friendly too. We would hire him again. He really made the party fun. I wish he sold a CD of his songs.
Response from Giovanni Ferretti:
Thank you, Alan! I really enjoyed singing for your party, and was very pleased to see all the dancing! I actually do gave a CD! I have an EP which you can buy. Khmer me know and I can send them out!!
Giovanni showed up early, brought great equipment and entertained my guests with humor and grace. He was exactly what we were looking for to entertain guests at my son's engagement party. We couldn't be more pleased with his performance😃
In fifteen minutes, Giovanni made such an impact on my mom at her quaint birthday lunch at a public little outdoor lunch spot that she actually cried. Mom's sisters said he was fabulous, and that strangers were coming up and asking for his card. I would definitely hire him again.
Wow! Giovanni was a part of our around the world themed Grand Opening. Very professional, easy to communicate with and even fit in some special requests. Strong powerful voice set the tone for a memorable finale to our event. We didn't want it to end! Highly recommend! Love the Tuxedo!
Response from Giovanni Ferretti:

Response from Giovanni Ferretti:
My pleasure, Alex!! Really enjoyed working with you on your project - the recording for the Venice Walking Tour! -Giovanni
We loved Johnny's talented, angelic voice and the person attached to it. He so completed the theme of our wedding and was an amazing wedding gift to my opera fan new husband who loved Johnny's voice as much as I did.
It was so apparent through conversations and his performance that Johnny truly is into his art, his music, and pleasing his audience. Bravo, Johnny!!! An amazing opera singer!
I would highly recommend Johnny to anyone who wants a unique, personalized wedding or professional event performer.
Thank you, Johnny, for all your help, time, and attention to making our day a day that we and our guests will remember forever. Jeanette and Tyson
Mr. Ferretti entertained us during my mom's 80th birthday celebration. We had toddlers, kids, young adults and young at heart adults in attendance. He was outstanding and entertained everyone. Great voice and easy to listen to. He was very professional and enjoyable. He was on time, sang longer than he needed to and was extremely cordial to all my guests. He was definitely worth the money. My highest recommendation!!
What to Expect
For a one-hour show:
Sometimes, clients will introduce me, otherwise, I will have a general introduction of who I am, what I will be singing. All shows are unique, and I consult with each client beforehand to determine any specific needs or wants for the show, such as specific songs that are wanted.
I will then sing for the full hour, unless the client prefers a short break after 30 minutes. Included in the show are some humorous original stories about opera the meaning of opera. This also includes a humorous rendition of one or more arias, translating it in full. This never fails to bring the house down!
I use the highest quality tracks, full orchestral studio recordings from Italy for opera. The best tracks I can find for others.
If the venue does not have a PA system, I will bring one - it is top quality, 1600 watts - it sounds great in the smallest to the largest venues! In this case I need to arrive early (sometimes with an assistant), to load in and set up the PA. This normally takes about 20 minutes. I will need the closest parking available for this.
We will need permission from the venue (workplace, hotel, etc.) for me to interrupt whatever is currently going on for my performance. Beforehand, we will also need to agree on a theme for the surprise visit. Once, In a hotel lobby, I was at the desk, as if checking in. At the right moment, the hotel started the track on their PA, and I started singing. Ten seconds later, the bride was in tears!
Additional Booking Notes
Unless you provide it, I will bring the P.A. I have full-orchestral back up tracks.
