The New York Symphonic Arts Ensemble (NYSAE) was founded in 1988 by a group of musicians in order to present to the public interesting orchestral music played at the highest level by a volunteer organization. For more than 20 years, the orchestra has played a series of five concerts per season. The repertoire has spanned a wide range of the orchestral and operatic literature, including many works not ordinarily attempted by community orchestras. In addition to the standard symphonic repertoire, our concerts have featured lesser known works and contemporary compositions. Our soloists range from internationally known musicians to promising students from the local conservatories. The orchestra comprises people who come from the greater metropolitan area to share their great love of music.
Timothy Hutto, music director of the New York Symphonic Arts Ensemble, was recently recognized as 2nd runner up in The American Prize Competition 2012 in the The Vytautas Marijosius Memorial Award Orchestral Programming category for NYSAE's 2010-11 season, "Mahler: Aspects". Music director of the New York Symphonic Arts Ensemble since the 2007-2008 season, he made his New York conducting debut with NYSAE in 2000 and subsequently appeared annually as a guest conductor. Under his leadership NYSAE has seen both an increase in the number of orchestra members and the size of its audience.
In 2007 he made his New York musical theater debut conducting the premiere of the Puppetry Arts Theatre production of In a Round About Way. In 2009 and 2011, he conducted the premiere of the Puppetry Arts Theatre readings of songs from the new musical Anthropomorphic. Prior to coming to New York, he worked in the field of music education in Texas. A native Texan, he earned degrees from Stephen F. Austin State University, the University of North Texas, and Sam Houston State University. From 1996-97, he was music director of the Huntsville Texas Youth Orchestra. In 2000, he was a fellow at the Conductors Institute at Bard College, where his teachers included Harold Farberman and Leon Botstein.
Although primarily a film composer, Thiago Tiberio has been conducting ensembles in New York for a number of years and is most active in film scoring sessions, where recording schedules require mature musicianship, clarity of expression, and accurate technique. He studied conducting with Robert Hart Baker, Yeruham Scharovsky, and Daniel Meyer, carrying forward the legacy of Herbert von Karajan, Leonard Bernstein, Otto-Werner Mueller, Sir Andrew Davis, Charles Dutoit, and James Levine, among others. He has collaborated with the Manhattan Camerata, Cocoro Strings, and Symfinity, as well as other ensembles. He holds a Masters in Music Composition from New York University.
