Conductor Peter Tiboris Marks 50th Podium Appearance at Carnegie Hall on May 11

NEW YORK – Carnegie Hall, one of the world’s most prestigious venues, will be graced with a special evening of music on Saturday, May 11, 7 PM, as the New England Symphonic Ensemble, led by Greek-American conductor Peter Tiboris, will take center stage at the Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage to perform works by Mozart and Schubert, marking Tiboris’ 50th podium appearance at the historic venue.

Highlighting the program is Schubert’s monumental Symphony No. 9 in C major, D. 944, ‘The Great C Major.’ This symphony, revered for its grandeur will showcase the virtuosity and passion of the New England Symphonic Ensemble under Tiboris’ direction.

In addition to instrumental masterpieces, the concert will feature Haydn’s Missa in angustiis in D minor, Hob. XXII/11, also known as the ‘Lord Nelson Mass.’ Conducted by Jason Sabino and Jason Strunk, this choral work will feature an ensemble of soloists, soprano Katherine Henly, mezzo-soprano Anna Kelly, tenor Hayden Smith, and bass baritone Jason Zacher.

“This performance marks my 50th time conducting at Carnegie Hall, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to make music in this iconic venue,” Tiboris noted. “Every concert here underscores the profound impact of live orchestra in moving and inspiring audiences. Sharing this milestone with the exceptional musicians of the New England Symphonic Ensemble is a truly memorable event.”

Greek-American conductor, music director, and impresario Peter Tiboris has been a vital presence on the international music scene for more than 50 years. As general and music director of MidAmerica Productions in New York since its founding in 1983, Tiboris has presented more than 1,400 concerts worldwide, including New York City like Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher (now David Geffen) Hall and Alice Tully Hall (the site of his January 7, 1984, New York debut with the American Symphony Orchestra).

In 2004, he founded MidAm International, which produces concerts in major European cultural centers including Paris, Vienna, Salzburg, Florence, Lisbon, Prague, Berlin, Warsaw, Athens, Moscow, and St. Petersburg. In 2005, he created the International Festival of the Aegean on the Greek island of Syros in the Cyclades, where he presented international-caliber performances of opera, oratorios, concerti, symphonic works, Greek folk music, jazz, theater, and ballet. In 2011, the festival was celebrated as the “best cultural organization operating in the wider region of Greece” by the Awards Committee of Music Critics of the Union of Greek Theatre and Music Critics in Athens.

Tiboris has a vast repertoire, ranging from major choral works to countless symphonies, operas, and ballets, including numerous world and American premieres. Among the distinguished orchestras Tiboris has conducted are London’s Royal Philharmonic and Philharmonia Orchestras, Niedersächsische Staatsorchester Hannover, Virtuosi di Praga, Brno Philharmonic, National Opera Orchestra of Cairo, American Symphony Orchestra, Moscow Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra, Société Philharmonique de Montréal, Israel Symphony Orchestra Rishon LeZion, Orchestra del Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, Orchestra di Verona, and Orchestra di Siciliana di Palermo. His ballet engagements have included the Balletto di Verona and the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, whose production of Peer Gynt with director/choreographer Renato Zanella was named “Ballet of the Year” by Danza e Danza magazine. In 2016, he made his Asian debut with the Macau Orchestra and Taipei Philharmonic Chorus in Macau, China.
