We are excited to present
Daniel Canosa
as Composer-in-Residence
for 2008-2009.

With a repertoire of symphonic and choral masterworks of all periods, Argentina-born conductor Daniel Canosa has lead orchestras and choruses in Argentina, the United States, and Europe. In Buenos Aires, he founded and directed the highly-praised Conjunto Vocal Egmont. In California since 1990, Mr. Canosa has conducted the Apollo Orchestra and Chorus, Auburn Symphony Orchestra, and Camilla Symphony Orchestra, among others. In 1996 Canosa deepened his involvement with period-instrument ensembles as music director of the Nieuw Amsterdam Barokorkest en Koor, touring extensively in The Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. In Amsterdam he also conducted the award-winning women’s choir D’Avanti. On his return to California, he founded the well-received Apollo Baroque Orchestra, a first for the Sierra Foothills, and in Sacramento, the Camerata California. Canosa’s research into ancient music of classical Greece informed his original musical scores for the Greek dramas Alcestis, Philoctetes, and Iphigeia in Tauris, performed by Apollo.

Canosa studied composition and orchestral conducting at the Argentine Catholic University and the Universidad Nacional de La Plata. He studied Baroque repertoire under Argentine maestro Sergio Siminovich in Buenos Aires and conductor Nicholas McGegan in Berkeley, California. His formation includes courses at the Mozarteum Conservatory in Salzburg, and in Munich and Paris with the legendary Sergiu Celibidache, music director of the Munich Philharmonic.
