Saint Jerome Music Ministers
Lorenzo Sanchez has enjoyed interpreting music of a variety of styles and nationalities in the United States, Mexico, and Europe. Lorenzo premiered Robert Guillory’s Concertino for Piano and Orchestra. His interest in Polish music led to him giving several lecture-performances at the Paderewski Festival in Paso Robles, California. He has performed for African-American composer George Walker and Japanese composer Mitsuru Asaka in Hawaii. He has played for several choirs touring Italy, The Vatican, and several Filipino community celebration masses at Our Lady Queen of Angels Cathedral in Los Angeles. Looking toward his own heritage, Lorenzo has edited and helped publish piano works by Mexican composer Domingo Lobato. He has recorded two CDs of Lobato’s solo piano works, and recently released a CD with clarinetist Virginia Figueiredo. All of his recordings are available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and others. Lorenzo holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts degree from USC.
