Alan Lopez

Well-versed as a solo and chamber musician, guitarist and lutenist Alan Roberto Lopez is committed to finding and communicating the true spirit of the music to his audiences. Most recently Alan performed at the National Museum of American History in Washington, DC for the 2015 Smithsonian’s Symposium on “Historically Informed Performance in American Higher Education.” In addition, Alan has performed inseveral venues around California and Mexico as a soloist and with his duo partner Tatiana Senderowicz.

Alan’s talent and dedication have led him to receive the Vincent Constantine Scholarship to study at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music where he recently got his Bachelor’s Degree of Music in guitar performance under the tutelage of Sergio Assad, a scholarship to play at the Hispano-Americano Guitar Festival in 2010, and a full scholarship to study at the Franz Liszt School of Music in Mexico. Alan has also performed in several master classes for figures such as Roland Dyens, Marcin Dylla and Giulio Tampalini.

Alan's interest in both early and contemporary music has led him to build a well-rounded repertoire on the guitar and theorbo with composers dating back to the late 1500’s such as Piccinini, Kapsberger, Caccini, and Monteverdi to more contemporary composers like Benjamin Britten, Leo Brouwer, Carlo Domeniconi and Dusan Bogdanovic.
