Becas Vallarta A.C. is pleased to present once again this unique and sought-after event in its second year, which celebrates both academic and music education in our community in one of the most enchanting surroundings of Puerto Vallarta.
This year’s feature are another two of Vallarta’s own artists, the guitarist Mario Blanco and pianist Adriana Martínez.
Mario Blanco himself is well known in our city’s musical circles as a competent guitarist and trova singer performing in his own café “Blanco y Negro” in the Hotel Zone nightly. Mostly self-taught, this will be one of his first ventures into classical music – and what better way than to concertise alongside his daughter, Adriana Martinez.
Talented Adriana Martinez, on the other hand, was encouraged to become concert pianist by local pianist Antoine Lecomte. And finding no qualified piano teacher in Vallarta, she promptly applied and was accepted to the Institute of Fine Arts of the University of Colima where she is completing her fourth semester toward a Bachelor of Music in Performance with Dr. Anatoli Zatin.
Even while attending master classes in 2005 and 2006 with various intenationally known teachers such as Anna Poklevska, Mikhail Markov, Elena Vassileva… in Colima, Adriana is a regular soloist with the University’s Fine Arts Chamber Orchestra.
