Lucía Barrero

Lucía Barrero was born in 1996 in Majorca (Spain), and she started her studies of violin when she was six. She graduated at the age of 21 from the Conservatory of Music of the Balearic Islands, Spain. Violin professors she has had during her career in Spain are Lourdes Pons, Ricardo Duato, Jose Manuel Álvarez Losada and Vicente Balaguer. She won first prizes in two instrumental solo competitions in Majorca: “Agora Portals” Competition (2013), and “Juventudes Musicales de Sóller” (2015). In October 2016 Lucia debuted as a soloist with the Beethoven Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 61 with the Orchestra of the Conservatory, conducted by Bernat Quetglas.
On January 2018 Lucía moved to the United States where she did her Master in Violin Performance with Susan Waterbury at Ithaca College School of Music. During these two years she had the opportunity to receive masterclasses from prestigious violinists, as Christian Tetzlaff and Benjamin Baker.
She has been Concertmaster of the Young National Orchestra of Spain (January 2017) and titular member for the last five years of the European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO). Playing with these orchestras has given her the opportunity to perform in the most important European halls, such as The Royal Concertgebouw (Amsterdam), The Royal Albert Hall (London), The Konzerthaus (Berlin), and The Elbphilharmonie (Hamburg) among others. Lucía has also played under the baton of prestigious conductors, such as Vasili Petrenko, Manfred Honeck, Gianandrea Noseda, Stéphane Denève, and others.
