Lochlan Brown is an Australian pianist, composer and conductor. He is a Fabbrica Artist at Teatro dell'Opera di Roma and has collaborated on the music staff of opera producers in the USA and Australia including Opera on Tap (NYC), Bare Opera (NYC), Long Island Opera, ARE Opera (NYC), Mannes Opera (NYC), Gilbert & Sullivan Society of WA (Aust.), WA Operabox (Aust.) and the West Australian Opera.  In 2016 and 2017, Lochlan served as assistant conductor at the Miami Music Festival for productions of La Boheme, Die Walkure, The Crucible, Le Nozze di Figaro and The Cunning Little Vixen under conductors Kathleen Kelly, Bradley Moore and Michael Rossi.

Lochlan received Bachelor’s degrees in music composition and solo piano from the University of Western Australia and the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts before moving to New York City to pursue a Masters degree at Mannes College. There, he studied orchestral conducting and collaborative piano under the tutelage of David Hayes and Cristina Stanescu. Between semesters, Lochlan participated in training programs such as La Lingua della Lirica (with Glenn Morton and Ubaldo Fabbri), Bel Canto in Tuscany (with Giovanni Reggiolo, Will Crutchfield and Richard Hetherington) and the Lisa Gasteen National Opera School in Australia (with John Fisher, Siegfried Jerusalem and Philip Mayers). He also had the opportunity to work exclusively on lieder in masterclasses with specialists Graham Johnson and Warren Jones.

As a conductor, Lochlan has appeared in front of the Mannes Orchestra and the International Chamber Orchestra of America, has led the Mannes Early Music Ensemble and has served as cover conductor for the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. He has also conducted and managed numerous community choirs, operetta productions and church choirs in Australia. His orchestral training began when Australia’s “Symphony Services International” Conductor Development Program offered him mentorship and opportunities to conduct The Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra in Sydney and the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.

Lochlan has received awards as both a pianist and composer, including the Newton Swift Piano Award (USA) for being “an outstanding soloist and amiable colleague in accompanying and chamber music”, first prize in the Evelyn & Ralph Thompson Memorial Scholarship competition for singers and pianists (Aust.), the Waveney Wansbrough Memorial Prize for Chamber Music Performance (Aust.) and placed first for his original compositions in Australia’s Fremantle Eisteddfod and Joondalup Eisteddfod. He was also awarded commissions to compose new works for the vocal ensemble Voiceworks’ ANZAC veterans commemoration and the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.

Lochlan aspires to conduct opera and Broadway, as well as continue to collaborate with singers as a recital pianist and vocal coach. Committed to redefining accessibility when it comes to classical music, Lochlan aims to help new audiences find interest in the art form sometimes perceived as antiquated. He believes that we must utilize innovation where possible, commit to educating and connecting with our communities, and incorporate the technologies of our era to better facilitate our art-making.
