Alvaro Gomez, Artistic Director of the FYAO FYAO Artistic Director Alvaro Gomez was recently named as one of a small handful of nominees for the honor of "Arts Educator of the Year" as part of the United Arts' Arts + Awards. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony to be held on October 3, 2011 in the Ports of Call Ballroom at SeaWorld Orlando. This is a huge honor for our Dr. Gomez, and one that is well-deserved. Prior to joining the FYAO, Dr. Gomez maintained (and still maintains) a full private studio of violin and viola students. He continues his work as the Artistic Director of the Winter Park Chamber Music Academy, a chamber group of elite student musicians, many of whom also play in the FYAO. He also succeeded the late Jonathan May as the Director of the Strings V class at Trinity Preparatory School. And, he has continued his role as Co-Concertmaster (along with his accomplished wife, Routa) of the Bach Festival Orchestra, where he frequently appears as a soloist.
Dr. Gomez' nomination as "Arts Educator of the Year" is a very significant recognition of the level of our artistic staff. All of them, Dr. Gomez, Jon Territo and Ross Amkraut, are excellent educators, conductors and musicians, and the FYAO is extremely fortunate to have each of them!
