Greek American conductor, music director, and producer Peter Tiboris has enjoyed a worldwide career for more than forty years of which the past thirty have been in New York City as founder and artistic director of MidAmerica Productions, which has produced concerts in Carnegie Hall, Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall (now called David Geffen Hall), and Alice Tully Hall in New York; the Festival of the Aegean in Syros, Greece; performances series in Vienna, Austria, and Florence, Italy; and concerts throughout Europe and the U.S. Maestro Tiboris is also the founder of the Manhattan Philharmonic, Elysium Recordings, and most recently, MidAm International.
Since 1983 in New York City, he has presented more than 1300 concerts worldwide, 1000 in New York, and more than 550 on the main stage of
Carnegie Hall, and conducted many of them. He is also Music Director of the Pan-European Philharmonia, in Warsaw, Poland, and Principal Guest Conductor of Collegium Symphonium Veneto in Padua, Italy. He made his European conducting debut on July 1, 1983, in Dubrovnik, Yugoslavia, with the Moscow Philharmonia as part of the Dubrovnik Festival; and his New York conducting debut on January 7, 1984, with the American Symphony Orchestra at Lincoln Center.
He has conducted in 24 countries, among them Mexico; Russia, in St. Petersburg and Moscow at Column Hall, Tchaikovsky Hall, and Shostakovich Hall; Great Britain, in London at the Barbican and Royal Festival Hall; Austria, at Vienna’s Konzerthaus; Poland, in 11 different cities including Warsaw; Czech Republic, in Prague's Rudolfinium and Smetana Hall with Virtuosi di Praga and the North Czech Philharmonic; Italy, at Teatro di Roma, Teatro Filarmonica di Verona, Regio di Parma, and 20 other locations; Portugal; Turkey; and Egypt, at Cairo’s National Opera House. Among the distinguished orchestras he has conducted are the Royal Philharmonic, London Philharmonia, Oxford's Philomusica, Niedersächsische Orchester Hannover, the Prague and Brno philharmonics, National Opera Orchestra of Cairo, American Symphony Orchestra, Moscow Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra, Société Philharmonique de Montréal, Israel Symphony Orchestra Rishon Le-Zion, Orchestra del Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, and Orchestra di Siciliana di Palermo. In March 2016, he made his Asian conducting debut with the Macau Symphony Orchestra and Taipei Philharmonic Chorus in Macau, China. Maestro Tiboris has conducted nearly every major choral work as well as countless symphonic works, selected operas, and ballet.
On his Carnegie Hall series, he has showcased hundreds of guest conductors and thousands of visiting ensembles who have come from throughout the world. As a conductor on his series, he has presented hundreds of works with numerous and significant world and American premieres, including works by Rossini, Mozart, Beethoven/Mahler, Taneyev, Cherubini, and Theodorakis. The concerts have been hailed by The New York Times, New York Daily News, New York Post, and The New Yorker. 
He is also responsible for the founding and development of Elysium Recordings which has released 30 recordings of which he can be heard on 10 of those. Most recordings in the Elysium catalog are premiere and first-time commercial releases.
He created the International Festival of the Aegean on the idyllic island of Syros, in the Aegean, Cyclades, Greece in 2005. Each July he presents performances of opera, oratorios, concerti, symphonic works, Greek folk music, jazz, theater, and ballet – all on an international scale. 2018 marks the 14th Festival of the Aegean. The central venue of the festival is the historic Apollo Theater, also known as “la piccola Scala” because it is a 400-seat replica of Milan's world-renowned Teatro alla Scala. The theater was built by resident Italians in 1864.
In 2013, he founded MidAm International, Inc. as a producer of concerts in Europe. Since then, MidAm International has presented concerts in Paris, Vienna, Florence, and Syros, with concerts slated in 2019 for Paris, Vienna, Salzburg, Lisbon, Porto, Florence, Prague, Berlin, and Syros. 
Peter Tiboris studied music at the University of Wisconsin and received a doctorate from the University of Illinois, but he credits his move to New York City 30 years ago as the most important event in his musical and professional life.
He is married to soprano Eilana Lappalainen, and they reside in Germany, Greece, and the U.S.
