"Michael Repper conducted the fine chamber orchestra with confidence and expressive nuance."
- Tim Smith, Baltimore Sun
I became interested in conducting when I was 9 years old! I was given the opportunity to dress in a Haydn costume to conduct the 2nd Mvt. of the "Surprise Symphony." The beauty of the music bore deep within me, and I knew immediately thereafter I wanted to study conducting. I never looked back!
My growth as a musician would not have been possible without my teachers and mentors, chief among them being Marin Alsop and Gustav Meier. For these mentors, and countless others, I have everything to thank. I strive to emulate their passion for music, conducting, and citizenship.
Modern musicians are responsible for more than performing. We must always make music at the highest level, but also strive to strengthen and mentor the younger generation of musicians at all times. I would be nowhere without my own mentors. My mission is to pay their energy forward.
