Raffaele Cipriano

Assistant Conductor

 

Raffaele Cipriano is an Italian conductor, vocal coach, composer, and computer scientist. He studied at the Conservatories of Padua and Venice with international mentors, focusing on orchestral conducting, collaborative piano, opera repertoire, and composition. In 2015 he moved to Kansas to pursue the doctorate in orchestral conducting at KU, under the supervision of Maestro David Neely. He graduated in 2018 with honors, gaining overwhelming feedback from his continuous artistic collaborations in the area (Lawrence Arts Center, Lawrence Opera Theater, community orchestras). For the 2018-2019 season, Cipriano was the assistant/cover conductor of Maestro De Renzi at Sarasota Opera (Barber of SevilleTurandotNabucodonosor). He is now based in the Kansas City metropolitan area, where he conducts two community orchestras (Philharmonia of Greater Kansas City and Overland Park Orchestra), and he is starting a collaboration with Landlocked Opera. At TSO, he is the assistant and cover conductor of Maestro Pickett, and he also oversees the live-streamed production of the TSO concerts.
