Spanish Young Music Talents: Susana Gómez in Texas

Spanish pianist Susana Gómez is the third guest of the new music program, “Spanish Young Music Talents,” presented by the Cultural Office of the Embassy of Spain in Washington, D.C.

Spanish Young Music Talents (SYMT) is the new program of the Cultural Office of the Embassy of Spain in Washington, DC. SYMT has been envisioned to enhance and support Spanish young musicians’ careers, in collaboration with U.S. music schools and universities at a higher level (bachelor and graduate students orchestras), offering them an experience abroad. SYMT aims to offer young musicians not only a concert or recital in the U.S., but a complete experience with complementary activities such as masterclasses, talks, conferences, etc. to broaden their opportunities and contacts. All visiting musicians are winners of the Juventudes Musicales de España national award and under 30 years old.

In this collaboration together with Texas Tech University, Gómez will performs its first album Ad Illam, winner of Best Classical Music Recording 2022 at the Más Músicas Awards, finalist in the Independent Music Awards 2022, and selected as one of the best albums of 2021 in Radio Clásica’s La Hora Azul.
