2021 Young Conductors' Residency Fellow

Adrian Lo

Adrian Lo is a Hong Kong born, Chinese-Canadian conductor, jazz double bassist, composer, and educator. His earliest musical influences came from his training as a classical pianist, and from his father’s love for 60s pop-rock. In his mid-teens, Adrian began exploring concert band and jazz repertoire through the guidance of his high school music teachers. At the age of 15, he picked up his first baton, conducting his school’s string orchestra through the 5th Movement of Peter Warlock’s Capriol Suite. Since then, Adrian has been the conductor of the senior jazz bands at Castlemore Public School and Pierre Elliott Trudeau High School in Markham, Ontario. He is currently entering his fourth year in the music education program under the jazz stream at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Music.
