Frank Tenaglia


Born in South Philadelphia in 1965, tenor Frank Tenaglia trained in classical voice at The Philadelphia College of Performing Arts and at Temple University. He went on to perform with the Greater Miami Opera Company in its productions of Madam Butterfly, II Trovalore, The Barber of Seville, La Premiata Fedelta, Idolmeneo, and Beauty and the Beast.

Tenaglia has participated, been a finalist, and/or been awarded prizes in major competitions conducted by The Metropolitan Opera Council, The Luciano Pavarotti International Competition, The Puccini Foundation, and The Opera at Florham Company. He has received The Drexel Music Award and The Jay Spect Award. Also, he is a three-time winner of The Mario Lanza Institute Award.

Tenaglia recently toured in concert with The Florida Philharmonic under the direction of Peter Nero. A double Grammy-winning pianist and conductor, Nero was exhilarated by Tenaglia’s performances. “Frank has a pure and natural tenor voice, along with a rare warmth and solid musicianship,” said Nero. “He combines these attributes to become that unique performer whose artistry results in instant communication to his audience as evidenced by consistent standing ovations.”

Today, Frank Tenaglia is performing as a guest soloist with symphony and pops orchestras and looking forward to working in both the film and recording industries.
