Luis Diego Mora

Hello everyone, my name is Luis Diego Mora Ferreira, I’m a trumpet player and I’m 19 years old. I’m originally from Venezuela, where I grow up under “El Sistema” in “El Conservatorio Jose Luis Paz” in Maracaibo, Zulia. I always have had a life surrounded by music, do to the fact that both of my parents were professional musicians. I moved in 2016 to the United States to continue my studies in Orlando, Florida, where I was able to play in the Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra (FSYO) for 3 consecutive years, play in things like All State, and I was also able to grow up no only in the Classical music style but many others, including Jazz, Salsa, Mariachi and many others. I have also participated in summer programs including “Yola National Festival” in Los Angeles under Gustavo Dudamel, The “NEC summer Festival” in Boston and “Longy summer program” in Boston. At the moment I’m realizing my undergraduate degree in Music Performance under my mentor Dr. Robert Murray in the Schwob School of Music, in Columbus, GA. Outside of music I also love to play soccer and enjoy the good environment that Columbus got to offer us. I’m very happy to participate and hope everyone the best of luck. Thanks!
