She is also principal second violinist of the Chamber Orchestra of the South Bay, and a member of the Pasadena Symphony. She is a former member of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, was co-principal violist of the Graz Philharmonic in Austria, and she served many years as concertmaster of the San Fernando Valley Symphony and the Carson-Dominguez Hills Symphony. Nancy has been a featured soloist with numerous Southern California orchestras including the Culver City Symphony, Carson Symphony, Chamber Orchestra of the South Bay, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Southland Symphony Orchestra, Valley Symphony, and Rio Hondo Symphony. She has given recitals and radio broadcasts in the United States, Austria and Mexico, and she is currently a member of the new music group “TEMPO” based at CSU Northridge. Nancy is a member of the String Family Players (quintet), which performs educational programs for the Music Center On Tour, and she has been on the faculty of the Max Aronoff Viola Institute Summer Music Festival. She has played baroque violin and viola with James Tyler in the London Early Music Group and Los Angeles Musica Viva. Nancy holds a Bachelor of Music from CSUN, a Master of Music from the Juilliard School and a Doctorate of Musical Arts from USC.
Lorenzo Sánchez's teachers include Anita N. Olsen, James Bonn, Robert Ward, Constance Keene, and Malcolm Hamilton. In 1992, he completed a doctorate of musical arts degree at USC.

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 collaborated in concerts featuring music by African-American composers such as William Grant Still and George Walker.  In March of 2005, Lorenzo performed for Dr. Walker and Japanese composer Mitsuru Asaka in concerts which took place in Hawaii.

Looking toward his own heritage, Lorenzo has performed in vocal, chamber, and solo concerts featuring music by Mexican composers.  He has edited and helped publish piano music by Mexican composer Domingo Lobato (University of Guadalajara, 2016). He has recorded a solo piano CD of Lobato’s four Piano Sonatas and recently released a second CD of other solo piano works by the same composer. He has frequently performed in Mexico with violinist Konstantin Ziumbilov, most recently in Guadalajara’s historic Teatro Degollado.

He has performed in many concerts with violinist Nancy Roth in Southern California, and is currently recording a new CD with clarinetist Virginia Figueiredo.
