Stefano Tomaselli is an Italian composer based in Los Angeles. He started his music career at the age of nine, when he began studying Piano with Professor Antonio Ranalli, student of Ferruccio Busoni. His journey as a student culminated with a Master’s Degree in Composition under the guidance of Maestro Alessandro Cusatelli. He also studied Organ with Professor Biondi, Violin with Professor Alessandra Albo and Drums and Percussion with Professor Messina.

Since he relocated to the US with the assistance of Academy Award-Winning Composer Bill Conti, he has been collaborating on several projects with world-renowned Tenor Plácido Domingo. His collaboration with the Maestro brought him to the attention of the Butler Opera Center in Austin (Texas) who commissioned him to compose an Opera.
