Colorado-based conductor Jeremy D. Cuebas is quickly establishing himself as a symphonic, operatic, and contemporary musician in the Denver area. He acts as assistant conductor with the Fort Collins Symphony, will soon be starting as the first assistant conductor with the Aurora Symphony, and is regularly invited to lead ensembles as diverse as, Opera Fort Collins, the It Could Be Anything new music ensemble, and the Boulder Concert Band.
Jeremy is the founder and co-host of Podium Time, a podcast of interviews and discussions with emerging and established conductors. In August 2019, Jeremy was invited to join the faculty of the International Conducting Workshop and Festival in Sofia, Bulgaria to assist with the program and produce videos and podcasts for promotion. The Podium Time Podcast reaches thousands of conductors and students each year, and its catalog of over 80 interviews includes conductors such as JoAnn Falletta, Teddy Abrams, Brett Mitchell, Kevin Noe, Christopher Rountree, Tito Muñoz, and Roderick Cox.
As comfortable in the theater as he is in the concert hall, Jeremy has directed numerous companies from the opera pit, including a fully-staged production of Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte and rehearsals of Sondheim’s A Little Night Music and Handel’s Serse with the Ralph Opera Center at Colorado State University. He recently guest conducted excerpts of Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd with the Colorado State Summer Master’s Program and served as assistant conductor for Loveland Opera Theatre’s production of Lehar’s The Merry Widow.
In 2016, Jeremy moved to Colorado to study with Wes Kenney and earn his Master’s in Orchestral Conducting at Colorado State University. He has worked with many other notable pedagogues, including Harold Farberman, Apo Hsu, Lawrence Golan, Guillermo Figueroa, Eduardo Navega, and Gianmaria Griglio at the Conductors Institute at Bard College; Gary Lewis and Larry Livingston at the Boulder Orchestral Conducting Symposium; Nicholas Carthy and Donald Schleicher at the International Conductors Institute, and Larry Rachleff at the International Conducting Workshop and Festival.
