Lorenzo has premiered new concert music for piano, including Robert Guillory's Concertino for Piano and Orchestra.  His interest in Polish music led him to appear several times as lecturer and performer at the annual Paderewski Festival in Paso Robles, California.

In 2004, Lorenzo accompanied a choral group on a concert tour of Italy, which included playing for mass at St. Peter’s Basilica. He accompanied a second choral music tour of Italy in January of 2013.

He has frequently performed in Mexico with violinist Konstantin Ziumbilov, most recently in Guadalajara’s historic Teatro Degollado.
