New Music

The music of Giovanni Santos is artistically authentic, with depth of character.  Santos’ music is full of love, charm, wit, energy, purpose, soul and drive – possessing a voice that is refreshing, and uniquely Giovanni. The experience of preparing, collaborating with, and presenting Giovanni Santos’ music has been an enthusiastic and thoroughly enjoyable journey from first measure to last measure, first rehearsal to final performance!
