Together with the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Benevento, an Italian city 50 kilometres northeast of Naples, British conductor Antonio Pappano launches this year a new competition for young singers named after his father, Pasquale Pappano, who was a singing teacher. After having emigrated from Italy to the United Kingdom in 1958, he and his family moved to the United States in 1973, where he established a singing studio in Bridgeport. Pasquale Pappano passed away in 2004, in Italy.

The first edition of Concorso Internazionale di Canto Lirico Pasquale  Pappano from 2 to 5 May 2017 in Benevento.
