Incanto Vallarta is thrilled to welcome musical virtuoso, David Mendoza, to its venue on Nov 27th and 30th. On Nov. 27 at 7 pm, David will present New Age Classics, and on Nov. 30, Jazz & Tangos.
David Mendoza grew up in a family of musicians in one of the most prolific cities in the world, Mexico City. Whether enjoying the works of Mozart, Symphonies, The Four Seasons of Vivaldi or listening to operatic voices, music has been a part of David’s life from the beginning.
At an early age, he composed music at the piano, even before any formal musical training. At the age of 7, he studied with Maestro Jose Manuel de Águila Cortez, violinist of the Chamber Orchestra of Bellas Artes, in Mexico City. His ability to express himself through the violin was revealed at an early age.
At the age of 12, David began to study Drums and at age 17 he began the formal study of jazz applied to drums, with the Mexican maestro Antonio “Tony Cardenas”.
At age 20, he studied composition and piano with the Mexican teacher Miguel Zepeda and at 22 studied composition and piano with the Mexican teacher, Marta Garcia Renart.
David has also studied Violin Techniques with the Cuban Maestro Rafael Machado and has taken Violin Courses with the Cuban Master Pedro Cartas. He was part of a group with Mexican guitarist Gil Gutierrez and collaborated with Michael Hoppè, a Grammy-nominated English composer.
Now living in San Miguel de Allende, David Mendoza is one of the most sought-after violinists in the cultural scenes of many major cities in Mexico. His ability to reach his audience through beautiful, heartfelt music is something very special that you’ll want to experience!
