Andrew Lipke is a Philadelphia-based, South African born composer, producer, arranger, conductor, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and educator active in many styles across multiple genres.

As arranger and conductor Andrew has worked extensively with American singer-songwriter Amos Lee, initially providing orchestrations for Lee’s 2015 album “Live at Red Rocks with The Colorado Symphony” and continuing to orchestrate additional material for Lee’s performances with prominent American orchestras including the Philadelphia, Nashville, Los Angeles, Oregon, St. Louis, Utah, and Seattle symphony orchestras. In 2019 Amos Lee returned to Red Rocks in a performance featuring Lipke conducting the “Red Rocks Chamber Orchestra” assembled specifically for the event. Past conducting engagements also include The National Symphony Orchestra at Kennedy Center, The Atlanta Symphony, Colorado Symphony, Grand Rapids Symphony, and Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestras.

As multi-instrumentalist Lipke spent more than a decade touring the country with the highly successful Led Zeppelin tribute band Get The Led Out as keyboardist, guitarist, and vocalist and has also traveled extensively as vocalist with conductor and composer Steve Hackman’s symphonic synthesis Brahms V Radiohead, including performances with the Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Indianapolis, Colorado, Columbus, Charlotte, North Carolina, and San Francisco Symphony Orchestras.

From 2015 through 2019, upon invitation from esteemed maestro Dirk Brossè, Andrew was in collaboration with The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia where he created, curated, and hosted an innovative, cross-genre concert series entitled “Intersect” exploring the common attributes of music that transcend genre and style.
