Zoe Zeniodi is Music Director of the Broward Symphony Orchestra, Head of Music Staff/Assistant Conductor of the Florida Grand Opera and Artistic Director/Principal Conductor of the Alhambra Orchestra. She has appeared as guest conductor with the New Philharmonic Orchestra of Florida, the Florida Youth Orchestra and the National Youth Orchestra of Spain (JONDE).
"...impressive podium authority and control...Zeniodi drew maximum tension from the opening sequences, bringing the quiet dreamlike section to a great climax...skillfully brought out the work's mood changes".
South Florida Classical Review, David Fleshler, 22 November 2009
During her tenure as Associate Conductor of the Frost Symphony Orchestra, she released two commercial recordings on the Albany Label to critical acclaim. Her recent recording of Thomas Sleeper's "Translucence" with the Brno Philharmonic will be released in 2013.
"...the equally confident FSO is expertly handled by Zoe Zeniodi, who a mere eight years back was a Junior Fellow at the Royal College of Music in London; now she has a doctorate and two conducting positions with American orchestras: this one and the volunteer Broward Symphony, also based in Florida. You can confidently expect to see her climbing up the ladder very shortly.'
The Classical Review, Martin Anderson, 2 September 2011,
"Frank Ticheli: An American Dream", Albany Records - TROY 1258
In addition to the standard repertoire, she has championed new works by living composers including Frank Ticheli and Thomas Sleeper. In September 2010, her book "Frank Ticheli: An American Dream" was published by VDM Verlag.
As a pianist, Zoe has appeared in the Purcell Room and St. Martin in the Fields (England), the National Opera House, the Athens Megaron and the Casa Dei Mezzo Festival (Greece), the Montpelier Festival (France), the Lisinski Concert Hall (Croatia), the European Union Hall (Belgium) and the Internationales Theater Frankfurt (Germany) among others.
"Zeniodi plays with sensitivity and gives to the songs a calm, colourful expression...and while Zeniodi in Debussy's 'Chansons de Bilitis' produces delicate dynamical transitions and lets the sound wave tenderly..."
