Master percussionist Samuel Torres will premier his new Chamber Music America Commision in conjunction with the Doris Duke Foundation, featuring Alex Norris and Michael Rodriquez on Trumpets, Marshall Gilkes on Trombone, Joel Frahm, Will Vinson and Ivan Renta on Saxophones, Luis Perdomo on Piano, Ruben Rodrigues on Bass and Pablo Bencid on Drums.

By the age of 12, Torres was performing with Bogota ensembles and eventually earned a degree in Music Composition from Bogota's esteemed Universidad Javeriana.  He arrived in the U.S. in 1999 and shortly thereafter, he was tapped by Cuban trumpet virtuoso Arturo Sandoval to join his group and stayed with Sandoval for 4 years. 

Torres is one of the most in-demand percussionists, having performed and/or recorded with Tito Puente, Angelique Kidjo, Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin and Chick Corea, to name just a few.
