Featured Musician

Concertmaster – Fabian Lopez

Fabian-Lopez-web-199x300Violinist Fabián López has toured extensively through the United States, Europe, China, and South America, gaining recognition as a soloist, chamber musician, and teacher. As soloist he has performed with orchestras in the United States, Spain, and France such as Real Orquesta Sinfónica de Sevilla, Hebert Springs Festival Orchestra, Orquesta Filarmonica de Málaga, etc. Fabián was a member of the Manuel de Falla String Quartet from 2000-2003 and currently is the first violin of the Carlos Chavez String Quartet. In North Carolina he has appeared as concertmaster of the Greensboro and Asheville Symphonies. Currently he is the concertmaster of the Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra.

In the pedagogical terrain, he is an active and dedicated teacher, maintaining a studio of prize winning, talented, and committed students. He taught at the Royal Conservatory of Music “Manuel de Falla” of Cádiz, Spain from 1999 to 2004 and has been teaching at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro since 2007. Regularly he presents master classes through-out the United States, Mexico, and Europe. In the summers he teaches at the Richard Luby International Violin Symposium at Chapel Hill and the Chamber Strings Music Workshop in Rosemont, Pennsylvania.

Fabián has a very diverse and extensive education that makes him “…a violinist that has everything…” and “…expressively through out with distinctive flair…” according to the press. At age eighteen he received a scholarship from the Hispanic-American Joint Committee/Fulbright Commission to continue his studies in the United States. He holds degrees from the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Málaga (Spain), Baylor University (MM), and The University of Michigan (DMA). He has also studied at Louisiana State University, San Francisco Conservatory, and Reina Sofia School of Music. His teachers have been: Nicolae Duca, Zakhar Bron, Laura Kugherz, Kevork Mardirossian, Camilla Wicks, Bruce Berg, and Andrew Jennings.

Fabian’s love for etudes and infinite curiosity of the trades from the great masters of the past and present, leads him to be the author of a violin etude anthology “Master the Violin Etudes”. This is a comprehensive and on going five-volume collection with explanatory texts accompanying each etude and free access videos that can be found at www.mastertheviolinetudes.com.
