“SOUNDS OF SPAIN
A journey through the Spanish music of the 20th and 21st centuries through the guitar”
Elena Ortega has performed as a soloist in different cities and venues throughout Spain, such as the CentroCentro Cibeles Auditorium, the Círculo de Bellas Artes, the Infanta Isabel Theatre, the Ateneo de Madrid or the Sevilla Musical Youth Pavilion, in turn participating in several musical cycles such as Soni-dos del Alcázar in Seville, Cervantino Cycles of the Cajasol Foundation, Comillas Musical Caprichos or the Andrés Segovia International Guitar Festival in Madrid.
Likewise, she has performed in Split (Croatia) interpreting the Aranjuez Concert with the Athanor Orchestra and has collaborated in various pedagogical projects such as the Commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of the Aranjuez Concert organized by the SGAE and the Popular School of Madrid.
She is currently part of various chamber groups and is concertmaster of the Madrid Guitar Orchestra, performing in different cultural centers and theaters in the community.
Elena begins to manifest a deep interest in music already at an early age. After obtaining a Chemical Engineering Degree at the UPM and a Guitar Degree at the Madrid Royal Conservatory of Music with teachers Gabriel Estarellas, Iliana Matos and Tomás Campos, his desire to perfect himself both artistically and technically led him to study the I Master of Classical Guitar Performance in Seville directed by maestro Francisco Bernier, with the participation of teachers Judicaël Perroy, Zoran Dukic, Pablo Márquez, Paolo Pegoraro and Lorenzo Micheli.
