HUGO PIERI

Conductor: TYO  Tasmanian Junior Chorale

Hugo Pieri began his music education from a young age studying piano, clarinet and participating in orchestral and choir ensembles. He completed a Bachelor's degree in Music at UFMG (Federal University), Brazil, a Diplôme d’Études  at the Conservatoire de Strasbourg in France and a Master of Music in Early Music and Singing at Musikhochschule Trossingen, Germany. Hugo's education includes vocal technique and interpretation, historically informed practice, harpsichord, and baroque theatre. His experience in Australia and Europe has seen Hugo lead ensembles with members ranging in age from six years to adults varying in styles from pop and traditional music to Brazilian song and percussion groups. As a soloist, Hugo has sung with Los Biganos in France, renaissance music with Schola Stralsundensis in Germany and early and traditional music from Brazil with Anima. 

 

Hugo has held positions as a music teacher and conductor since 2016 where he guides young musicians as a mentor and teacher in instrumental, singing, choir and theory lessons.

We welcome Hugo to Tasmanian Youth Orchestras as conductor of the TYO Tasmanian Junior Chorale.
