Colorado-based conductor Jeremy D. Cuebas has quickly established himself as a symphonic, operatic, and contemporary musician in the Denver area. He is the newly-appointed Music Director of the AMC Orchestra and acts as assistant conductor with the Fort Collins Symphony. He is regularly invited to lead ensembles as diverse as Opera Fort Collins, the Playground New Music Ensemble, and the Boulder Concert Band. Jeremy’s work is focused on audience engagement and conductor training.
Jeremy also serves the Fort Collins Symphony as their Digital Communications Director and Webmaster. He built and maintains the orchestra’s website, FCSymphony.org, and runs all digital communications for the organization, including social media and email marketing.
Jeremy is the founder and co-host of Podium Time, a podcast of interviews and discussions with emerging and established conductors. The podcast celebrated its 100th episode in February 2021 with a live-streamed fundraiser for the Projected Inclusion Conducting Fellowship through the Chicago Sinfonietta. The fundraiser featured live interviews with Carolyn Watson, Thomas Taylor Dickey, Brett Mitchell, Kevin Noe, and Tito Muñoz, as well as the premiere of a new interview with Mei-Ann Chen.
As comfortable in the theater as he is in the concert hall, Jeremy has directed many 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 2018, Jeremy completed his conducting studies at Colorado State University with Wes Kenney and Leslie Stewart. Through conducting workshops and symposiums, he has worked with many other notable teachers including Kevin Noe, Larry Rachleff, Brett Mitchell, Markand Thakar, Donald Schleicher, Gary Lewis, Larry Livingston, Harold Farberman, Apo Hsu, Nicholas Carthy, Lawrence Golan, Eduardo Navega, and Gianmaria Griglio.
Jeremy lives in Loveland, Colorado with his partner Crisara, their dog Daisy, and their crested gecko named Skeeter. He enjoys reading sci-fi and personal development books, writing blog posts he probably won’t publish, and watching horror movies while doing yoga.
