Alessandro Pittorino

"Australia's Wunderkind Organist" ABC TV

Hailed as "Australia's Wunderkind Organist" by ABC TV, ALESSANDRO PITTORINO is an Australian musician who is increasingly becoming one of the most exciting, invigorating, and innovative young organists in the world today. Starting organ at the age of 5, Pittorino has gone on to be one of the few Australian graduates (and the first Australian Organist) of The Juilliard School, where he studied with GRAMMY Award-winning organist Paul Jacobs. As a performer, Pittorino has performed from New York to California; from Perth to Sydney, and has been lauded by The Australian as “a self-confessed showman who loves to engage with his audience”. As an innovator, Pittorino has been employed by different organizations to enhance and enliven their performing arts scenes. NYC’s Blessed Sacrament Church, most notably the parish church of Lady Gaga, engaged Pittorino to rebirth the music scene and establish a thriving performing arts scene at Blessed Sacrament. In less than eight months, with the help of fellow colleagues from The Juilliard School, a new young Arts hub was established and features NYC’s finest young performers. Pittorino’s recent performance highlights include Lincoln Center's annual Fashion Gala at Alice Tully Hall and collaborating NYC soprano Ariadne Greif at The Resonant Bodies Festival at Carriageworks in Sydney, Australia. Upcoming highlights for 2019 include Pittorino’s debut at the Melbourne Town Hall and first season as organist for the West Australian Symphony Orchestra (WASO). Pittorino currently resides in Perth, Western Australia.
