Contact Me


After graduating with a BM from Indiana University (Bloomington) as a double bass student of Bruce Bransby, Jeremy Baguyos began an orchestral career that included full-time appointments with the Orquesta Filarmonica de GC (Spain) and the Shreveport Symphony as well as freelance engagements that included, among many other groups, performances with the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra, the National Symphony, the Milwaukee Symphony, the Kansas City Symphony, and the Spoleto Festival Orchestras. He has performed under the batons of Leonard Slatkin, Mstislav Rostropovich, James Levine, Andre Previn, Placido Domingo, Valery Gergiev, and Michael Stern. Highlights of his solo and chamber music engagements include appearing as soloist with the Columbus Philharmonic (Indiana), as soloist with the Heartland Philharmonic, in multiple appearances at the International Society of Bassists Convention, and performing the solo double bass with the Orquesta Filarmonica de Gran Canaria on the Fourteenth Symphony of Dimitry Shostakovich.

Mr. Baguyos is Principal Bass of the Des Moines Metro Opera Orchestra and is Professor of Music in doule bass (classical & jazz) & music technology, at the University of Nebraska Omaha.

His academic cognate is computer music, which he applies broadly, from "artificially intelligent" musical improvisation to S.T.E.A.M to audio forensics. He holds a Master’s Degree in Computer Music-Performance Track from the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University and is active nationally and internationally as a composer, performer, and researcher in the field of academic computer music, with notable presentations and performances at the ICMA International Computer Music Conferences and publications with the MIT Press and ICMC Proceedings.

Mr. Baguyos was born in Quezon City, Philippines and was raised in Overland Park, Kansas. He resides in Omaha, NE with his wife, two children, and a beagle. In his spare time he enjoys biking, watching the Kansas City Chiefs, and spending time with his family (including the beagle). If he had to do it all over again, he would be a stand-up comedian because stand-up comedians have an easier time traveling on airplanes on work-related trips.
