Adam A Torres, conductor and collaborative artist, made his professional debut as a piano soloist with the San Angelo Symphony at age eleven. He has since maintained a busy schedule as a performer, conductor, and educator.
Torres is currently in his fourth season as the Assistant Conductor for Fort Collins Symphony and in his third year as Music Director for Zion Lutheran Church (Loveland, CO). Known for his flexibility and versatility, 2014 has provided the opportunity to conduct and rehearse the newly formed Alpharetta Symphony (Alpharetta, GA), the Colorado State University Concert Orchestra, the Denver Young Artists Orchestra, and the Colorado Springs Conservatory summer production of Oklahoma!.
In November 2014, Torres collaborated with the Chamber Orchestra of the Springs (Colorado Springs, CO) as an emergency guest conductor with only a few hours’ notice prior to downbeat.
Torres remains in active demand as a collaborative pianist in Northern Colorado. He is a regular performer with the Cheyenne Symphony, Sound de Trois (flute, clarinet, piano trio), and regularly accompanies for private studios in Northern Colorado. He has also recently performed with other organizations such as the Fort Collins Wind Symphony, the Poudre Valley Health and Wellness Orchestra, and the San Angelo Symphony. He has performed in several recitals for Colorado State University’s Aries Composers’ Festival for Contemporary Music and for the CSU Virtuoso Recital Series.
In addition to Adam’s work as a conductor and pianist, he maintains a small piano studio and holds the rank of Special Assistant Professor of Music at Colorado State University with a focus in Online Curriculum, where he also serves as the Coordinator for CSU’s Summer Residency Masters in Music Education Program with Conducting Emphasis.
