Italian singer and writer Antonella Chionna was born in Taranto (IT) on November 20, 1990. She took up musical education at Conservatorio di Musica “Nino Rota” in Monopoli (IT) where she studied with her mentor, recognized as one of the finest educator of vocal training education in Italy, the Italian soprano Gianna Montecalvo. During the years of study and research that they carried out together, they have built a professional relationship founded on mutual esteem, which allowed them to engage a musical relationship that went beyond the academic path, culminating with a tour in the United States where they performed together and recorded an album of improvised music that was released in the summer of 2018 by the prestigious, English label Leo Records.
