Celia Garcia-Garcia



Master of Music by Codarts Conservatory (Rotterdam, The Netherlands), Celia started studying classical piano at the local conservatory of her hometown Burgos (Spain). She followed Bachelor studies at Musikene in San Sebastián (Spain) and then ArtEZ hogeschool voor de kunsten (Arnhem, Enschede & Zwolle, The Netherlands), where she got her Bachelor Diploma with teacher Frank van de Laar.

With her many chamber music ensembles she has performed all over The Netherlands and in Spain, Germany, Lithuania, Canada and China.
In 2011 Codigo Trio recorded their debut album Martyrs, devoted to forgotten repertoire for this relatively unusual ensemble: mezzosoprano, French horn and piano.

Celia is specialized in orchestral playing (piano, celesta and synthesizer) and has performed with Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Noord Nederlands Orkest, Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Dutch National Ballet Orchestra, Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra, Dutch National Youth Orchestra and others.
Lately she has performed at TV programs De Tiende van Tijl and Maestro, as well as radio programs Opium (Radio 4) and NTR Podium.

She has got prizes for her solo playing at Xàtiva National Piano Competition, Arlanza Young Pianists Competition and others, and she was a finalist of the Grachtenfestival Conservatorium Concours and Albacete National Piano Competition.
