My experience

 

I have always lived in Barcelona, although now my plan is to relocate to another country.

I studied violin, choir and orchestral conducting, counterpoint, fugue and composition at the Municipal Conservatory in Barcelona and graduated in Law from the University of Barcelona.

 

I founded and directed a school of music: the UT Centre d'Estudis Musicals.

There I wrote hundreds of chamber works and cantatas, gave classes in music language, conducted choirs and organized international exchanges.

 

At the same time I started to work in the world of orchestras, first as the person in charge of music documentation, and later as a technical director, manager and executive director.

While managing the Orquesta Simfònica del Vallès, I was the promoter of the “Som Sabadell” FLASHMOB, financed by Banc Sabadell, which has received more than 80 million visits. It continues to be a symbol of the need to bring together the community and the cultural groups, as well as being an example of a good practice in the relations between financial entities and the cultural companies they sponsor.

 

I founded and chaired the Catalan Association of Professional Orchestras (www.acop.cat) and I have been a member of the board of the Spanish Association of Symphonic Orchestras (www.aeos.es).

 

Those who think this experience is valuable have invited me to teach on the UB Master's in Cultural Management, the International University of Catalonia (UIC) Master's in Cultural Management, at the Esade School of Business Administration and at the Catalonia College of Music (ESMUC).

On the other hand, I believe that my greatest personal talent is writing and I have decided to resume the literary work abandoned fourteen years ago.

I'm married to Anna Martinez Norberto, who has the most beautiful voice in the world, and we have three daughters of very different ages, who provide a lesson on how to adapt to changing needs;-)

 

This year, in 2019, I founded SMILE Artistic Management & Consultancy, where I offer consultancy services to orchestras and conductors, design and project management, and an artists' agency.
