Pianist Lorenzo Sánchez has enjoyed interpreting music of a variety of styles and nationalities in the United States, Mexico and Europe. Sánchez premiered Robert Guillory’s “Concertino for Piano and Orchestra.” His interest in Polish music led giving several lecture-performances at the Paderewski Festival in Paso Robles.

He has played for several choirs touring Italy, The Vatican and several Filipino community celebration masses at Our Lady Queen of Angels in Los Angeles.

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.
Unfortunately, the global pandemic caused the cancellation of concert appearances in Brazil and Mexico this year.
Sánchez holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts degree from the University of Southern California.
