A Brief Bio
Alan Luntz is pursuing his undergraduate degree in tuba performance and music education at Northwestern University, where he studies under newly appointed professor Gene Pokorny, and professor emeritus Rex Martin.
He has been a fellow with the Fresno Summer Orchestra Academy, and has attended Interlochen Arts Camp and Music in the Mountains Conservatory. Currently, he is a member of the of the Heights Brass Quintet -- a project he founded, and professional events coordinator for the Northwestern University National Association for Music Education (NAfME) chapter. Prior, he performed as tubist of the Contemporary Youth Orchestra, America’s only youth orchestra dedicated especially to new music, and served as music teacher at his place of worship, Suburban Temple-Kol Ami.
From opportunities such as these, he has found himself in a boggling array of musical situations, including performing 90s’ hit “Gangsta's Paradise” with its writer, playing a full orchestra concert barefoot, and executing an impromptu rendition of a Jonas Brothers song for a fourth grade music class.
