Described by the Atlanta Constitution Journal as a "genuine talent", Portuguese-American Jacomo Rafael Bairos enjoys an emerging career as an inclusive and imaginative conductor, dedicated collaborator and educator, and genuine facilitator for young living composers.

In 2013 Bairos was appointed the Amarillo Symphony's 17th Music Director and Conductor. His fresh and inventive programming, establishment of the first ever composer in Residence, as well as his community-driven initiatives have helped transform the Amarillo Symphony into a multifaceted vehicle for expression and community partnerships. 

Along with composer Sam Hyken, Bairos is co-founder and Artistic Director of Nu Deco Ensemble, a virtuosic and eclectic chamber orchestra designed for the 21st Century. Bairos oversees the mission of executing adventurous and exciting classical based collaborative performances, while presenting various styles of music, art, and media in both traditional and alternative concert venues.
