A native of Los Angeles, percussionist Kevin Schlossman moved to Portland in the summer of 2016. Since then, he has had the pleasure of playing regularly with the Oregon Symphony, the Portland Opera, the Vancouver Symphony, and the Salem Symphony, among others. He has also had the distinct privilege of working with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, LA Opera, and LA Chamber Orchestra.
Kevin received his Bachelor’s Degree in performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and his Artist’s Diploma from the Colburn Conservatory in Los Angeles. And ardent proponent of both chamber and 20th century percussion music, he was a founding member of the Kaleidoscope Chamber Orchestra, Los Angeles’ first conductor-less orchestra, and a member of the Smoke and Mirrors Ensemble. He can be heard as a soloist on their second album, Vanish. During his tenure as a student, Kevin attended the American Institute of Musical Studies Graz, the Round Top Festival Institute, and the Aspen Music Festival and School, where the Aspen Times remarked that his, “timing and wit had to be seen to be believed.”
