CHRIS OPPERMAN (Musician)
CHRIS OPPERMAN is is an award-winning composer who has recently emerged into the mainstream. The music of award-winning composer Chris Opperman sounds like your best dream being poured into a glass. For the past twenty years, Opperman has been carving his own niche in today's modern music scene. His music is extremely varied in terms of genre and style and over the years has become increasingly ambitious in scope. Thanks to decades of study and practice, Opperman is equally comfortable composing music for rock bands and jazz combos as he is composing for symphony orchestras and chamber ensembles. Opperman also loves to laugh and his compositions often benefit from his sense of humor.
In addition to his own music, Opperman has performed with and/or orchestrated music for such industry luminaries as Grammy-award winning guitarist Steve Vai, virtuoso musician Mike Keneally, Indian classical music masters L. Shankar (a.k.a. Shenkar) and Zakir Hussein, and former Duran Duran/Missing Persons guitarist Warren Cuccurullo, among many others. Opperman played piano on two of Steve Vai's Grammy-nominated compositions, "Lotus Feet" from Real Illusions: Reflections and "The Attitude Song" from Sound Theories, Vols. I and II, both with the Metropole Orkest and both nominated for Best Rock Instrumental Performance. Opperman's orchestration of "For the Love of God," also from those sessions, has exceeded 33 million views on YouTube
