Spanish pianist Laura Ballestrino is the second guest of the new music program, “Spanish Young Music Talents,” presented by the Cultural Office of the Embassy of Spain in Washington, D.C.
Spanish Young Music Talents (SYMT) is the new program of the Cultural Office of the Embassy of Spain in Washington, D.C. SYMT has been envisioned to enhance and support Spanish young musicians’ careers, in collaboration with U.S. music schools and universities at a higher level (bachelor and graduate students orchestras), offering them an experience abroad.
SYMT aims to offer young musicians not only a concert or recital in the U.S., but a complete experience with complementary activities such as masterclasses, talks, conferences, etc. to broaden their opportunities and contacts. All visiting musicians are winners of the Juventudes Musicales de España national award and under 30 years old.
This collaboration, starring pianist Laura Ballestrino, is the second of this new program together with Georgia Tech University. In addition to a concert as a soloist, Ballestrino will be giving two masterclasses to the students of the university, a recital, and some workshops and lectures.
