Angel Lorenz

Musical Director

Angel began his music journey as a Junior in high school. But it was not until his Senior year, when he was exposed to Jazz, that he discovered music was his calling. He was accepted soon after into the Ravinia Jazz Mentor Program, where he played the Saxophone and learned from Chicago’s best – such as Willie Pickens, Pat Mallinger, Tito Carrillo and Bobby Broom. All the support, encouragement and teachings from these mentors proved to be a pivotal point in the life of this kid raised in the South Side of Chicago, originally from Celaya, Guanajuato.  Dharmastation.com
