Sebastian Buccioni is the Artistic and Executive Director of Estonian Music Week (EMW), Toronto and a Project Manager at Music Estonia (ME), Tallinn. Despite the challenges of the pandemic Buccioni successfully organized EMWs first online season in 2020 followed by its first hybrid music festival in 2021, which connected performers on two stages 6700 km apart in real-time through the power of live-stream. Buccioni takes a collaborative approach to programming, working with community groups to deliver meaningful content. Expanding EMW beyond programming, Buccioni is the driving force behind EMW's involvement in music import/export between Canada and Estonia. As a Project Manager, Buccioni is largely responsible for ME’s international conference and tradeshow portfolio (including WOMEX, Reeperbahn, and Jazzahead! among others). His work involves organizing delegations and events, conducting market research and advising artists. Buccioni served on the board of Toronto Operetta Theatre for 4 years including 1.5 years as President. While active as a musician Buccioni was known for his work as a Hammond Organist and Keyboardist with the Julian Taylor Band, the Out of Towners and Chameleon Project. His compositional work has earned him a FACTOR and Canada Council for the Arts grant. Buccioni holds a BFA with specialization in music from York University and a Postgraduate Diploma in Arts Management from Queen’s.
