A young and energetic new talent with a budding international career, maestro Thiago Tiberio is often praised by his peers for mature musicianship, clarity of expression, and accurate technique.
A multifaceted musician, his classical, operatic, and film music career includes work with orchestras in the United States, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Turkey, Australia, South Korea, Japan, and Brazil.
His latest accolades include a concert of Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony with Neojiba Youth Orchestra, hailed by critics as “genius”, and a concert with the Orquestra Sinfônica Nacional of Brazil which included the world-premiere of a new Critical Edition of Walter Burle Marx’s Fantasia Sobre o Thema do Hymno Nacional, as well as the first time in 40 years that his Symphony No. 3 was performed—marking the beginning of an extensive musical restoration project by the maestro.
Mr. Tiberio is a specialist in musical synchronization to film, having conducted orchestras in scoring sessions during most of his career. This naturally led to positions in live-to-picture concert productions, such as Star Wars Live in Concert, Pixar in Concert, Danny Elfman: Music from the Films of Tim Burton, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Lord of the Rings: Live to Projection, and others. He premiered the fully orchestrated version of Coco in Concert for Disney, closing the 2019 Ravinia Festival with the Chicago Philharmonic.
Fusing his conducting experience with an award-winning training as a composer, he has arranged, orchestrated, and directed concert adaptations of a variety of films, such as Love Actually, The Hunger Games, Cinema Paradiso, The Goonies, Grease, Twilight, Coraline, Bridget Jones’ Diary, Get Out, and Call My By Your Name.
Tiberio is also the official conductor of America’s Wonders, the world’s first 3-dimensional, IMAX-style cinematic journey with live orchestra—a celebration of America’s most breathtaking national parks and cities with classical, pop, and original music meticulously synchronized to picture.
