From childhood Giorgio Fornasier showed his talent as musician playing various instruments and singing as soloist and in choirs. He plays mandolin, guitar and piano in spite of an accident he had in 1969 that cut off 4 fingers of his right hand.
Giorgio is very successful and well known in Northern Italy as composer and folksinger on TV shows and concerts. He studied classic singing with well-known teachers and since 1988 he has performed concerts all over the world as classic tenor specialised in sacred music of 17th and 18th Century. For 5 years he performed major concerts with the Asuncion (Paraguay) Symphonic Orchestra conducted by Luis Szaran.
From 2001 Giorgio has worked with the project “Sonidos de la Tierra” in Paraguay, created by his good friend Luis Szaran to enhance, through music, the lives of socially bereft young people living in poor villages in this country. He followed the foundation of the first schools of music and is raising funds personally in Italy for the project together with donation of musical instruments and accessories. When he has time, he goes to Paraguay to teach singing in the poorest schools of the interior.
In November 2006, Giorgio retired from his professional singing to concentrate on his international work with the International Prader-Willi Syndrome Organisation.
In 2008 he met the poet Diego Stefani who inspired him with his poems and outlook on life.. Giorgio composed 14 songs based on poems written by his friend in only 40 days. A DVD has been published to be sold together with the book of poems.
