Giannis Giannopoulos

I received my Post-Graduate diploma in Piano Performance from the Royal Academy of Music in 2009 as a student of Ian Fountain. During my studies in London, I obtained the LRAM diploma as well (2008). I previously had my piano diploma from the Conservatory of Athens in 2005 (age of 21). I am now on my final year of my MMus in Orchestral Conducting in the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.

As a soloist, I have performed with the Athens State Orchestra, the Thessaloniki State Orchestra and the Symphonic Orchestra of the Municipality of Athens, and have given recitals and chamber music concerts besides Athens and several greek cities in London, Paris and Moscow. In 2012 I was invited by the Greek Embassy in Japan to give a series of recitals in Tokyo, Okinawa and Fukuoka. In December 2014, I was awarded as a soloist from the Academy of Athens.

Apart from my piano studies, I have been having conducting studies with the famous greek conductor Loukas Karytinos. For the years 2014-2015, I was appointed as principal conductor of the Athenian Mandolin Orchestra. Meanwhile, while living in Greece, I worked as a repetiteur/assistant conductor in opera productions such as The Medium/ Menotti, Cinderella/ Viardot, J.Cesar/ Tsalachouris, The Magic Flute/ Mozart.
Since I arrived in London (2015) I have worked as an assistant conductor and repetitor to Mos Fraser Goulding, Michael Seal (Birmingham Conservatoire), Dave Wishart (Berlin opera group), Razvan Luculescu (Clyde Opera), Philip Headlam (Berlin Italian Opera Group) and to Philip Hesketh (Opera de Bauge). I have worked as a musical director in L’inganno felice/Rossini (Concertante) for the Greek National Opera and in Rigoletto/Verdi (Concertante) for Berlin Opera Group.

In August 2017, i completed my first opera production with my newly founded opera group "Corpus Animae", staging Teleman's "Il Pimpinone" for the Aegina International Music Festival. I recently worked as musical director of Les Contes d’Hoffmann/Offenbach (Passaggio Oper group/Berlin) and Die Fledermaus/Strauss (Opera Diaspora/London)

Amongst other upcoming concerts and recitals, I have been appointed as MD in La Boheme/Puccini (Passaggio Oper group/Berlin).

I have been working as a piano teacher in the Conservatory of Athens (2011-2015) and teaching ABRSM Theory of Music and piano in both ABRSM grades 1-5 and greek curriculum at the Athens College Conservatory (2010-2015), the school which i attended myself as a student.  
Since I arrived, I worked for Hindhead Music Center (2016-2017), West Kensington Music Team (2016-2017) and MusicoSouth (2016 till today).
