Conductor, Music Director
“The National Symphony Orchestra was stellar, conducted with elegance and mirth by Emmanuel Fratianni”
MD Theater Guide - Washington D.C. July 2013
Emmanuel Fratianni has delighted and engaged sold-out audiences of American and International orchestras since 2009. Leading over seventy world-wide symphonies to date, Maestro Fratianni is embraced by musicians and audiences alike, as a prodigious conductor of classical, multimedia, and pops programs.
Welcomed for his masterful leadership of orchestra, choir, guest artists, visual media and audience rapport, Maestro Fratianni has led major ensembles including the San Francisco Symphony, Baltimore, Dallas, Detroit Symphonies and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
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 and raised in a large and lively Italian family on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland, 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 recently completed his 13th year as principal conductor of the acclaimed symphonic production "Video Games Live.” He is a US and Italian citizen, fluent in French, Italian and Neapolitan.
Mo. Fratianni is based in Santa Barbara California, Geneva Switzerland and Bisaccia Southern Italy.
