Distance Learning Master Class with Thomas Muraco, Voice

The internationally-acclaimed pianist and conductor teaches vocal students at the Amsterdam Conservatory, live from our Distance Learning studio at MSM, connected by videoconference technology.


Thomas Muraco has been described as “simply one of the finest collaborative artists before the public today” by the Boston Globe. Known for his technical virtuosity, he has been praised for his interpretations of Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Chopin, Brahms, Wolf, Debussy, Rachmaninoff, and Poulenc, and given premieres of William Schuman and George Perle. He has partnered such singers as Adele Addison, John Aler, Martina Arroyo, Arleen Augér, John Cheek, Phyllis Curtin, Mary Dunleavy, Faith Esham, Maureen Forrester, Denyce Graves, Ben Heppner, Henry Herford, Ying Huang, Sumi Jo, Susanne Mentzer, Chris Merritt, Roberta Peters, Hermann Prey, Twyla Robinson, Jennie Tourel, Benita Valente, and Dolora Zajick, and instrumentalists John Graham, Robert Mann, Arnold Steinhardt, Zara Nelsova, Ransom Wilson, Peter Winograd, and the American and Shanghai String Quartets. Mr. Muraco has recorded on the Serenus, CRI, and Musical Heritage labels and, most recently, released a Brahms Liederabend on CBC Records with contralto Maureen Forrester.

Mr. Muraco has trained pianists in the art of accompanying and coaching, as well as singers, at Manhattan School of Music since 1993. Read more.
