Will Nazareno will be receiving his Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance in the coming Spring of 2019. Will is Bruin Harmony's primary arranger and head music director. Having been involved with several communities around campus, he has also been part of many shows like "Bonnie & Clyde" (Act III) and "25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" (Act III) as the music director for both shows. As a composer, he has written several original scores for straight plays - most recently Shakespeare's "Hamlet" and "As You Like It" - and will be working on an original musical project this coming spring. Will has also been involved with many local orchestras and ensembles as well as being an active member of the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music ensembles as both principal and ensemble member of his sections. When he isn't doing music, Will can most likely be found cooking something in the kitchen or binge watching Game of Thrones. He would like to thank his friends and family for all that they've given him!
