Introduction
Welcome to my Google+ profile!
My name is Vincenzo Scarafile and I'm a Choral Conductor, Countertenor and Music Educator based in Puglia, Southern Italy. 
After graduating at Conservatoire in Italy I moved to England in 2005 where I sung in several professional cathedral choirs (Canterbury, Southwell and Lincoln) before being appointed Alto Lay Clerk at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford in 2007. I sung in Oxford until July 2012, when I decided to go back to Italy.
Additionally I'm a member of the acclaimed Ars Cantica Choir (Milan) and Artistic Director and Co-founder of the International Campus Musica, Polignano (IT), the largest Summer Music Camp of Southern Italy for young talented musicians. 
In 2014 I co-founded and became the conductor of "Gabriel Faure'" Girls Choir from Bari (IT). 
At present am training to become a Qualified Music Teacher in Secondary Schools in Puglia.
In my spare time am passionate about photography, Latin languages, design, wine tasting and Mediterranean food. 
Bragging rights
I have been the only Italian musician to work in British Cathedral Choral Foundations since Reformation times.

Thanks to all singers that joined us in Puglia in December for 
the V NICHOLAI HARMONIAE International Choral Festival, 
to the Saint Memory of St Nicholas.
We had such a GREAT festival this year, full of sounds, colours, friendship and excitement... a real Choral Music Fest here in the heel of Italy.

We are looking forward to welcoming you again soon.
Happy New Year!
