Portuguese-Canadian tenor, Remigio Pereira, is a multifaceted artist sought-after for his work as a vocalist, guitarist, composer and songwriter. He is fluent in four languages and has performed extensively throughout North America and Europe.
Remigio's love for music began in his late teens when he performed as a self-taught guitarist in local rock bands. At the age of twenty-three, he was accepted to Le Conservatoire du Quebec where formal vocal and classical guitar studies began. For the following three years, Remigio was awarded several top prizes and scholarships before graduating with a Masters Degree in Classical Guitar Performance.
During this same period, he began singing with professional opera companies and performed numerous solo recitals for Ambassadors, Prime Ministers and Presidents world-wide. Throughout his career, Remigio has had the unique opportunity to perform many styles of music including Rock, Pop, Reggae, Opera, Latin and Classical music.
Born to Azorean parents, Remigio remains close to his Portuguese roots through his love of Fado music. He is equally inspired to sing an opera, as he is to write a pop song, a symphony, or a verse of poetry.
As a composer and songwriter, Remigio's original works and orchestral arrangements have been featured in Hollywood motion pictures and at various international venues including the 2003 Presidential Visits to Canada. His sold-out debut CD Destino is a cross-cultural collection of Spanish guitar, Portuguese Fado and Italian love songs, while his most recent CD entitled Incanto highlights famous Italian opera arias. In addition, Remigio's music has been frequently broadcast on numerous international radio and television stations. Ai nostri "fans" ti amo! Grazie tanto e a presto!!
