PMF is deeply saddened to learn of Nello Santi's passing. Known at PMF as "the singing maestro," Santi served as Principal Conductor at PMF 2005, leading the young musicians of the PMF Orchestra in the full Respighi 'Roman' trilogy, and more. For his innumerable contributions to music and music education, both here in Sapporo and throughout the world, we are forever grateful.
