Federico Coppo

Federico Coppo is a first year student in Mechanical Engineering at Boston University, and is an international student from Milan, Italy. He started playing the piano at the young age of five and his interest in music has always been growing since. After having studied piano at his school, he took lessons with Fabio Napoletano, which gave him great passion for the instrument and love for music. After having discovered the organ at thirteen, in order to practice at home and start studying the instrument, he built himself a five manual digital organ using Hauptwerk. In 2014, he started taking lessons of organ interpretation and improvisation with Maestro Alessandro La Ciacera, vice titular organist of the Duomo cathedral in Milan, and became member of the organ society Flute Harmonique. M. La Ciacera taught him the basics of “basso continuo”, other than teaching organ technique and interpretation. At the age of fifteen, Federico was vice titular organist at the Basilica of Our Lady of Sorrows in Rho, where he refined his liturgical accompaniment techniques. He has performed in several concerts and has played for masses in the Duomo cathedral and at Santa Maria delle Grazie (Milan). As soon as he knew about the possibility of continuing to pursue his passion in Boston, he began studying organ with Christian Lane. He is now member of the Boston Organ Studio.
