Orlando Medrano is a Texas-based musician—hornist and educator—who performs regularly in the South Texas area. A recent graduate of Indiana University Jacobs School of Music having studied with Dale Clevenger, Medrano maintains an active performing schedule with local orchestras, chamber groups, and solo performances. Medrano has studied at Texas A&M University – Kingsville and University of Houston, currently works as a horn consultant, and is part of the music faculty at Texas A&M International University in Laredo, TX where he teaches horn and chamber studies. At a young age he became passionate for music as an emergence from his father who is an active musician of regional Mexican folk music. Medrano is a believer of music being a universal language that connects the human race across the nations and around the world, and continues to share the power of music through the attendance of music festivals, his chamber group – Valledo Winds, and outreach programs that showcase orchestral music to underprivilegedu communities. Medrano loves the outdoors, being creative, Brahms, Op. 40, and wine – in no particular order.
