Giordano Lucà began his singing career aged 12 in the chorus of Maria Madre del Redentore in Rome. In 2005, he attended the master classes at Katia Ricciarelli's Lyric Academy. He also attended master classes with Enzo Dara, Monserrat Caballé and auditioned for Luciano Pavarotti in 2006, Marcelo Alvarèz in 2008 and Francesca Patanè in 2009.

In 2007 he started lessons at the Music Institute of Milan with Carlo Gaifa, and he now continues his studies in Rome with soprano Clizia Aloisi. In 2007 he won both the Special Prize at the City of Merano competition, and the Mario Lanza prize at Filignano. Giordano's many concert appearances include Katia Ricciarelli's Lyric Academy concerts in Chiavari in 2005 and Monteroduni in 2007, appearances at the Brazilian Embassy and Bolzano Castle, a concert in Massa with Enzo Dara and a concert of Puccini arias with Monserrat Caballé in Saragoza in 2008.

He performed again with Mme Caballé last year in a Christmas concert in Rome, which was broadcast all over the world. Also in 2008, Giordano made a recording for Vatican Radio.

When he is not performing, Giordano enjoys cooking and going to the theatre and cinema.
