Career[edit]

Figallo's involved in the vocal a cappella music scene, teaching voice, coaching choirs, conducting, arranging, adjudicating vocal contests and holding workshops on many subjects: singing bass, vocal percussion, vocal group singing and all things vocal.

His main involvement is with the Wise Guys (band) and the Flying Pickets. He's also founder of The Ghost Files, a vocal studio project dedicated to original vocal music recordings. He is a freelance conductor working all over Europe. From June 2012 to June 2013 he has been the musical director of the choir don camillo chor, Munich.

His original choral music is published by Edition Ferrimontana GmbH and Helbling GmbH.

On 31 October 2012 he was introduced as the new bass singer of the German a capella band Wise Guys and successor of the former bass singer Ferenc Husta. Since the beginning of December 2012 he has been living in Cologne.[1]

In February 2016, the Wise Guys made two important announcements: 1) the decision to disband in July 2017, 2) Andrea would have leave the band two months later.[2]

To this day, Figallo travels all around the world teaching music, coaching choirs, producing recordings and adjudicating choral competitions.
