Lukas Foss is a pianist, a conductor and, perhaps most notably, a composer. Foss was born in Germany and was fifteen when his family immigrated to this country in 1937. Even before that he'd begun his prolific output as a composer and was recognized as a child prodigy on the piano.

He now leads both the Milwaukee Symphony and the Brooklyn Philharmonia. In addition to that, Lukas Foss is an educator.
