Christopher Confessore

Guest conductor

Christopher Confessore currently serves as Music Director and Principal Conductor of the Brevard Symphony Orchestra and Resident Conductor of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra.  His schedule as a guest conductor has included appearances with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Houston Symphony, Kansas City Symphony, Hartford Symphony Orchestra, New Mexico Philharmonic and the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra.  He made his international debut in 2004, conducting the Sibiu Philharmonic Orchestra in Romania, returning for additional performances in 2009.  He also appears as a conductor for two of Walt Disney World’s most elaborate productions: the Candlelight Processional at EPCOT – and The Music of Pixar: A Symphony of Characters at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.


Heralded as a sensitive accompanist and inspiring collaborator, Christopher Confessore has accompanied a distinguished list of 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, Chris Botti, Indigo Girls 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.”
