Conductor

Conductor Thiago Tiberio’s classical, operatic, and film music career includes work with orchestras in Germany, United Kingdom, Canada, Spain, Australia, Switzerland, Turkey, South Korea, Japan, Brazil, and the United States.

Mr. Tiberio recently led the Neojiba Youth Orchestra in a concert of Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony, and he conducted Orquestra Sinfônica Nacional of Brazil in a program that included the world premiere of a new version of Walter Burle Marx’s Fantasia Sobre o Thema do Hymno Nacional and Symphony No. 4, Macumba. Mr. Tiberio was arranger, orchestrator, and music director for the live-to-picture concert adaptation of Love Actually. As a composer, his prize-winning works have been performed in notable locations worldwide, such as the United Nations in New York City, and in 2016, his Choros Nos. 1 and 2 were performed at Theatro Municipal João Caetano in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Mr. Tiberio is the recipient of a Luso-Brazilian Award (received at the United Nations in recognition for special contributions to the American communities) and an International Brazilian Press Award for Best Musician in 2015. He worked with John Mauceri on the Live from Lincoln Center special, Danny Elfman's Music from the Films of Tim Burton, which won two Emmys in 2016.

Mr. Tiberio holds a master’s degree in music composition from New York University and bachelor’s degrees in music and business administration. Among his teachers are Robert Hart Baker, Daniel Meyer, Dinu Ghezzo, and John Mauceri. He is the President of the Burle Marx Music Society and the Executive and Artistic Director of the New York-based ensemble The Third Estate Project.

Perhaps the only conductor in the world who makes his own batons and binds his own scores in hardcover, Mr. Tiberio lives in New York, NY where he plays his Yamaha grand piano to the steady 137 BPM of a cuckoo clock.
