Gustavo Moretto was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he initiated his music career as a trumpet player, and later formed a jazz-rock group called Alas, for which he composed all the material and played electronic keyboards. Mr. Moretto toured extensively through Argentina and Chile and recorded six LPs (for RCA and EMI), and worked as a studio sessionist and guest performer with many prominent musicians in Argentina. In 1979 Mr. Moretto came to the United States, where he pursued formal training in composition. He holds a B.M. from the New England Conservatory and a D.M.A. from Columbia University. Mr. Moretto is presently a professor in the instrumental program at LaGuardia Community College.
