Conducting Fellow  (2015-2016 & 2016-2017)

Bryan Thomas Niedermayer is a multi-faceted musician: an accomplished tenor, a bass player in rock bands, a pianist and organist for several churches, and an emerging composer and conductor. His talents and energy transcends any one genre.

Bryan’s love of music began with singing with his family when he was a young child. He has since earned his bachelor’s degree in music education at Central Connecticut State University and performed across the US and Europe, including a concert tour in France in 2006. Other highlights include performances of Eric Whitacre’s Paradise Lost Shadows and Wings in 2011 at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, This Shining Night: The Music of Eric Whitacre and Morten Lauridsen in 2012 at Carnegie Hall, and Defying Gravity: The Music of Eric Whitacre and Stephen Schwartz in 2014 at Avery Fisher Hall. While a student at CCSU, Bryan refined his vocal and conducting skills and fell in love with composing. His choral settings have been performed by choirs all over the country. Bryan is thrilled to be the Vernon Chorale’s Conducting Fellow and to continue learning and growing on his musical journey.
