Mar Bonet Silvestre

The Spanish cellist Mar Bonet-Silvestre benefits from the influence of her entire family of musicians, who deeply educated her in the music world from
a very early age. Her performances aim to combine the uniqueness of the classical music traditions with value-based productions across artistic
expressions, communicating the need for raising mental and discriminating actual issues and debates across socio-cultural borders.

She was born in Valencia in December 1998 but grew up in Madrid, where she started her musical education by the age of 4 firstly taught by her mother. She was then a student of Pilar Navarro, Adolfo Gutierrez and Raúl Pinillos, completing her preliminary studies with the Spanish National Award.

She was accepted to Queen Sofía School of Music by the age of 17, where she studied under the tuition of Ivan Monighetti and completed her bachelor studies with Professor Jens Peter Maintz and Fernando Arias by 2020. Currently she is completing her master studies in the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo, leaded by Professor Torleif Thedéen and thanks to the scholarship awarded for her by AIE in Spain.

Mar has performed all around Spain from a very young age, both as a soloist and as a chamber musician. As a well devoted chamber musician, Mar thinks to feel herslef the best when playing with others, and has been on tour with both her piano trio and quartet in numerous cities around Spain. Moreover, she is an active member of the Spanish National Youth Orchestra and is regularly invited to
perform as a scholar with the National Orchestra of Spain (ONE). Also in Norway she has been part of Ungdom Symphonikerne, and is developing a new collaborative programme involving inter-diciplinary and social-building concepts within the classical music world.
