Alba Vinti López
Alba was born in Valencia, where she grew up listening to old records of Pixies, Ornette Coleman and The Beatles. The musical atmosphere in her home led her to start playing flute at 8 years old. Even though she still loved those old albums of pop, jazz and rock stars, she soon added new CDs by Händel, Schönberg or Tchaikovsky to the collection.
When she decided she wanted to go on with this classical music thing, she moved to Zaragoza to study her Bachelors in Conservatorio Superior de Música de Aragón, where she had the opportunity to work with teachers as Antonio Nuez, Fernando Gómez, Clara Andrada, János Bálint, Simona Pittau, Ricardo Borrull or Márta Gulyás. During these years she discovered she wanted to pursue a career in orchestral playing, so she went to study in Conservatorium van Amsterdam with great orchestral players like Kersten McCall (flute), Vincent Cortvrint (piccolo) and Marten Root (baroque traverso).
Soon she began to gather inspiring experiences with orchestras such as the Spira Mirabilis, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra or the Britten-Shostakovich Festival Orchestra (of which she is a member).
As a passionate chamber musician, Alba has been a member of Meraki Wind Quintet and she took part in the Natalia Ensemble Academy. In 2019 she created Nus Duo with guitarist Inés del Río. Together they have won several national awards, and are now developing a pedagogical project to bring young children closer to classical and world music.
Alba is very happy to have been selected as a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra in 2022 and is thrilled to take part in its projects this year.
