Composer & Conductor

Nicholas Anthony Ascioti's compositions have been performed by world-renowned instrumentalists and vocalists including Angela Gosse, Nancy Loesch, Stephen Tharp, and Eileen Strempel. Ascioti’s voice is the result of combining polyphonic structure of the Renaissance and 20th century techniques.

Mr. Ascioti received his professional debut at age 21 with a commission from Albany Symphony Orchestra conductor, David Allen Miller. Judge, Jury and Executioner was premiered by the Dogs of Desire, the orchestra's chamber ensemble. As a conductor, Nicholas focuses on performances of the 20th century choral repertoire.

“Ascioti pairs the voice with some unexpected instruments, such as cello, flute, oboe,
or harp. It lifts the instrumental writing beyond the role of vocal accompaniment to a more independent and evocative creative element.”
Joseph Dalton, Albany Times Union
