Evan Meccarello


Evan Meccarello, recently appointed Artistic Director of Cordancia, also serves as Music Director of the Binghamton Community Orchestra, Hochstein Alumni Orchestra, and Irondequoit Community Orchestra.  He is an adjunct faculty member at Nazareth College, where he teaches conducting and previously was conductor of the Nazareth College Chamber Orchestra. Evan holds a masters degree in orchestral conducting from Bowling Green State University and a violin performance degree from Nazareth College.   He has appeared as a guest conductor and clinician at schools in five states, including NYSSMA Area All-State and All-County orchestras. Special engagements in the 2022-23 season include Cover Conductor for the Wheeling Symphony Orchestra (professional orchestra in Wheeling, WV), a set of children’s concerts with commissioned local composers called "We Write Orchestra Music!", guest conducting at local schools, and a recording project with composer Diana Rosenblum. This season he was named a National Finalist for The American Prize in virtual performance, for the innovative program Music Outside the Box. The program was an all-online festival for high school musicians featuring live virtual ensemble rehearsals and performances of contemporary music during the pandemic lockdown. The project received international attention, leading to an invitation to present the experience to Sistema Europe Youth Orchestra.  In addition to serving as Cordancia’s Artistic Director, Evan also conducts Cordancia for at least one concert each season.
