VIVIAN TORRES

Vivian Torres is a recent recipient of the Artist's Diploma in Viola Performance from the Frost School of Music. She is a member of the performing group "Baby B Strings." Baby B Strings released their first album in 2013 with their original arrangement of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition and debuted it at the (former) Miami Art Museum. Baba - Yaga, one of the movements from the suite, was featured live on WLRN's Folk and Acoustic Music with Michael Stock. Some other highlights include appearing on an internationally released HTC commercial featuring Robert Downey Jr. and playing on a South Florida promotional tour with MAC Cosmetics.

Baby B Strings pride themselves with having an open and forward-thinking attitude about the role of string players in the world of art. Playing in venues such as Miami's legendary rock club Churchill's Pub and working alongside major artists like Steve Miller (of Steve Miller Band), Maxwell, Mark O'Connor, and Black Violin are some of Baby B Strings' past projects outside of the classical genre.
