He made his international debut in 2004, conducting the Sibiu Philharmonic Orchestra in Romania, returning for additional performances in 2009. He also regularly 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, Amy Grant, Roberta Flack, Judy Collins, Marvin Hamlisch, LeAnn Rimes, Chris Botti, Indigo Girls and Charlie Daniels and Tony Award winners Idina Menzel and Jennifer Holiday. 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.”
