About Roger

American conductor Roger Nierenberg is the creator of The Music Paradigm which has brought him to the podium of The London Philharmonic, The Residentie Orkest, The New Zealand Symphony, The National Symphony, the symphony orchestras of Pittsburgh, Atlanta, and Baltimore. He has collaborated with musicians from more than one hundred orchestras around the world.

Mr. Nierenberg enjoyed long tenures as MusicMaestro Director of both The Jacksonville Symphony (Florida)
and the Stamford Symphony (Connecticut). His career began with an auspicious debut at Lincoln Center with the Pro Arte Chorale and subsequent performances at the Mostly Mozart Festival. Numerous guest conducting engagements followed with many of the great American orchestras, including the symphony orchestras of Austin, Baltimore, Charleston, Columbus, Detroit, Indianapolis, Kansas City, New Jersey, San Diego, St. Louis, and Utah as well as New York’s American Symphony Orchestra, Washington D.C.’s National Symphony Orchestra, the Buffalo Philharmonic, and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Abroad, he has recorded with the London Philharmonic, and has conducted concerts at the Prague Spring Festival with the Czech Radio Orchestra and at the Beijing Festival with the Shanghai Broadcasting Symphony Orchestra. Other performances include engagements with the London Mozart Players, Mexico’s National Symphony Orchestra, the Nova Scotia Symphony and the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra.

Nierenberg has conducted operatic performances with the Opera Theatre of St. Louis, the Chautauqua Opera, the American Opera Center at Lincoln Center and opera in concert with the Dallas Opera (with Frederica von Stade) and the Santa Barbara Symphony (with Ms. Von Stade and Thomas Hampson). He has appeared at numerous summer festivals including the Tanglewood Institute, the Grand Teton Music Festival, the Colorado Festival, the National Repertory Orchestra, and the Madeira Bach Festival.

The Music Paradigm is a powerful learning experience that uses symphonic music to illuminate compelling insights about people at work. Participants are seated directly amongst the orchestra musicians where they gain fresh understandings about the opportunities and challenges faced by their own organization. Over the past twenty years, Nierenberg has presented to hundreds of different organizations, from civic groups to Fortune 500 companies, in two dozen different countries.
