VIRGINIA LUQUE

A native of Algeciras, Virginia Luque began playing the guitar when she was four, started formal training when she was six, and gave her first concert at the age of seven. After hearing her play, the legendary Spanish guitarist Andrés Segovia invited her to study privately with him. She received her master’s degree in Spain and at Segovia’s suggestion went to America, taking a master’s degree at The Juilliard School in New York City. She has been awarded first prize at several international competitions including the Manuel de Falla Competition for Classical Guitar in Granada, and has received the Lincoln Center Scholarship, among other awards. She has performed Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez with a number of orchestras and recorded it with the London Symphony Orchestra. She has also performed her own Concerto with the Alexandria Symphony. Recitals have included venues such as Carnegie Hall, Town Hall, The Metropolitan Opera House and The Frick Collection, New York City, and numerous concert halls throughout the United States.
