Christopher Confessore Resident Conductor and Principal POPS! Conductor
Christopher Confessore serves as Resident Conductor and Principal Pops Conductor of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra and Music Director and Principal Conductor of the Brevard Symphony Orchestra in Melbourne, FL.
During the 2014-15 Season, Mr. Confessore’s schedule as a guest conductor includes appearances with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, New Mexico Philharmonic, Sarasota Orchestra and the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra. In recent seasons he has also appeared with the Charlotte Symphony, Naples Philharmonic, Hartford Symphony Orchestra and the Houston Symphony. He appears annually as a conductor of Walt Disney World’s Candlelight Processional at EPCOT – a production featuring a full orchestra, 300-voice choir and celebrity narrators including Whoopi Goldberg, Neil Patrick Harris and Gary Sinese.
Heralded as a sensitive accompanist and inspiring collaborator, Christopher Confessore has accompanied a distinguished list of world-class concert artists, including Itzhak Perlman, Joshua Bell and Lang Lang. As a Pops conductor, he has appeared with a diverse group of superstars, including Grammy Award winners Art Garfunkel, Roberta Flack, Judy Collins, Marvin Hamlisch, LeAnn Rimes, Indigo Girls, Chris Botti and Charlie Daniels and Tony Award winner Idina Menzel. Music columnist Mary Colurso of The Birmingham News remarked “Anyone who regards the symphony as stuffy and elitist hasn’t been to a SuperPops show when Confessore’s in charge. He exudes nice-guy appeal on stage, along with real warmth, a sense of humor and smarts to spare.”
