Hailing from the island of Puerto Rico, violist Luis Perez now resides in Houston, Tx, where he maintains an active and diverse career both as teacher and performer. A graduate of the University of Houston’s Moores School of Music, Luis Perez studied under the guidance of Houston Symphony principal violist Wayne Brooks. Always inspired by music’s ability to transcend physical and cultural boundaries, Luis is committed to the performance of any genre or style of music, searching foremost for a genuine means of communication. This search has led Luis to work with many great artists in many venues both in the Houston area, and throughout the world, from the subways of Chicago to music halls in Beijing, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. When not exploring musical performance or education, Luis likes to enjoys listening to classic salsa music from the Fania All-Stars, and taking naps with his cat, Otto.
