Aldo Fabrizi’s music career started in earnest when he was twice awarded a fellowship to study at the Tanglewood Music Center as a double bass player. Similar fellowships from the Aspen Music Festival, Los Angeles Philharmonic Summer Music Festival, and American Institute of Musical Studies (Graz, Austria) followed which led to Mr. Fabrizi performing with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Boston Pops, Opera Company of Boston, Handel & Haydn Society, Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra, and the Boston Ballet orchestra. Through his involvement with these organizations Aldo Fabrizi has performed with many of the world’s leading conductors, singers, and instrumentalists such as Leonard Bernstein, Seiji Ozawa, Michael Tilson Thomas, Kurt Masur, Eric Leinsdorf, Luciano Pavarotti, Alfred Brendel , Marilyn Horne, along with many others. From 2012 to 2017 Aldo Fabrizi was Music Director of the Valley Light Opera where he conducted some of Gilbert & Sullivan's best loved operettas along with performances of Lerner & Loewe's Brigadoon and Humperdinck's Hansel & Gretel. Aldo Fabrizi was appointed Music Director of the Greater Worcester Opera in 2016 where he conducted the highly acclaimed performances of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro in 2016 upon which this Panopera production is largely based. He’ll be returning to the Greater Worcester Opera podium in the spring of 2018 to conduct a series of performances of Mozart’s Don Giovanni. This is his first appearance with Panopera. Aldo Fabrizi is also an accomplished mandolinist and the founder of the 3rd String Trio, an ensemble which performs “Old World Café Music”, in which he gets to play many of the Italian folk songs taught to him as a child by his father and grandfather.
