Gina Perregrino

Guest Writer

Gina Perregrino is an American opera singer, teaching artist, and writer. She has performed in operas across the globe, and collaborated with authors such as Salman Rushdie and Khaled Hosseini to translate their work for the stage. Her experiences in the high-pressure world of operatic training and performance have led her to advocate for more transparency around the emotional, financial and geographical realities of being a full-time opera singer. Along with having her master’s degree, she credits discomfort and the nervous system as the teachers who have taught her the most. A daughter and granddaughter in a family of quiet artists, Perregrino is determined to make some noise. Along with her active performance career, she founded FORTE, an innovative musical mentorship program for those interested in pursuing a career in the arts, using music as the catalyst for social, emotional and somatic awareness.
