I'm super excited to announce I was awarded the Adams Nordstrom Early Music Award from UNT. I'm very privileged, and pleasantly surprised, to receive this on my last concert with the UNT Baroque Orchestra as a DMA student. The experience I received throughout the years while working with director Paul Leenhouts and the musicians in the Orchestra have made me grow in ways I never thought possible. My most sincere thanks to everyone who made this possible!!

I'm extremely excited to present this recording project I worked on with the UNT Baroque Orchestra: Courtly Masque Music from the 17th & 18th century. This is the first of a couple of recording projects I got coming up but definitely the most interesting and unique one. I suggest you open a nice bottle of wine and take a look at this incredibly varied display of mask, effects and court tunes! You can find me in a couple of the ensembles playing baroque guitar, theorbo or arch-lute, as well as a couple of solos. Check out the link for the entire 1 hour+ concert.

I'm excited to show you this new video, with some beautiful footage of my native country of Puerto Rico, of the piece El Coquí written by the composer José Ignacio Quintón and arranged for guitar by the Puerto Rican guitarist Juan Sorroche. Coquí is a name that refers to several species of small frogs native to Puerto Rico which make a very unique mating call. Due to its particularity and familiarity, it is a source of pride for many Puerto Ricans and its singing offers pleasant memories of the island of enchantment.
