Marcel Xerri is of Maltese descent. The warmth and richness of the Mediterranean is evident in the timbre of his voice. Emotive depth is balanced with an effortless ringing top creating a fine dramatic tenor.

Marcel Xerri studied privately in the UK with Shirley Dangerfield, an international dramatic soprano and now receives vocal coaching from Paul Farrington.

He sings many of the romantic and heroic tenor roles and is equally at home in oratorio and on the concert platform.
An accomplished exponent of contemporary music, his performances of new works include 'In Reason and Passion' a Cantata for voice and piano composed for him by John Human and 'The Strangest of Islands' an opera by Guy Richardson.
Concert experience has included recitals ranging from Neapolitan Song through to Wagner, and as the guest soloist around the country with others such as the Cwmbach Male Voice Choir.
Marcel Xerri has also sung for charities such as Diabetes UK, Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research and is also involved with educational work taking opera into schools and colleges around the country.

Marcel Xerri is also artistic director of 'Opera Verismo'  focusing on the passion, drama and realism in performance of opera from mostly the verismo period.
