Rhodes Scholar Nick DiBerardino is a composer whose music depicts vivid, fantastical journeys. Melodic lyricism, “richly textured, multilayered” sounds (Minnesota Star Tribune), and dynamic harmony “full of jostling and jarring tonal colors” (Broad Street Review) distinguish his diverse catalog. Nick’s work weaves “surprisingly harmonious melodies” (Portland Press Herald) into a visceral, gestural language, making contact with science, literature, history, art, and poetry to trace broad narrative arcs that resonate beyond the concert hall. Nick is also a passionate educator, arts administrator, and teaching artist motivated by the belief that music can meaningfully draw communities together.
