Conerway, a proud Detroit native, made extraordinary use of the many educational and cultural opportunities of that formidable city, performing as a high school student on the The Detroit Jazz Festival stages and spending several years under the tutelage of the late, great trumpeter, Marcus Belgrave, as a member of the Detroit Symphony Civic Jazz Orchestra. His thirst for the jazz idiom was nurtured by his mother, a lover of music, who made sure he experienced live performances of all types. Not to mention, his father, a brilliant classical violinist, also shared a deep and unabiding love for jazz music in all its incarnations.
