Conductor, Music Director
Emmanuel Fratianni has delighted and engaged sold-out audiences of American and International orchestras since 2009. Leading over 70 orchestras worldwide to date, Maestro Fratianni is embraced by musicians and audiences alike, as a prodigious conductor of classical, multimedia, film and pops/crossover symphonic programs.
Welcomed for his masterful leadership of orchestra, choir, visual media, guest artists and audience rapport, Maestro Fratianni has led major ensembles including San Francisco Symphony, Baltimore, Dallas, and Houston symphonies, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, among others, and is completing his 10th year as principal conductor of the acclaimed symphonic production "Video Games Live".
As a Music Director, Emmanuel’s successful curating of concert programs has secured both public and private funding for new musical works in the US and abroad.
Born & raised in the Swiss Alps, Mo. Fratianni’s extensive background as both a classical and jazz musician affords him as much ease leading a 120-piece orchestra as a jazz trio. He is a US and Italian citizen, fluent in French, Italian and on rare occasion, Neapolitan, when overly excited.
