Concert Series presents Roberto Berrocal

Artistic Director
Roberto Berrocal
St. Hugh-Steinway Concert Series presents Roberto Berrocal, piano on Friday, April 8 at 8 pm, at St. Hugh Catholic Church. Roberto, pianist and Artistic Director of the Series, has just returned from Bilbao, Spain where he played two solo piano recitals in the Chamber Music Series of La Orquesta Sinfónica de Bilbao at Palacio Euskalduna. He will play the same program at St. Hugh-Steinway which features works by Haydn, Chopin, Liszt, de Falla and Gershwin. 

Roberto's virtuosity and warm musicality at the piano is well-known to Miami audiences. He accompanies all the artists in the Concert Series, and plays a solo recital every year. In May, 2015 he played Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with the St. Hugh Orchestra at the New World Center. 

In 2006, Roberto was invited to join the Florida Grand Opera Ensemble as pianist and vocal coach. He also accepted a position at The New World School of the Arts, and became Music Director at St Hugh Catholic Church in 2007. For the 2012-13 season he was Florida Grand Opera's Principal Coach for FGO's Young  Artists Series, and was chosen as the principal pianist for the 25th, 26th, and 27th FGO YPO National Voice Competitions.

He founded the St. Hugh-Steinway Concert Series with Fr. Federico Capdepon in 2012. The series presents concerts in the intimate and beautiful 400-seat St. Hugh Catholic Church. The series presents four concerts per year of vocal and instrumental stars with piano accompaniment, and has built a regular audience of 300-400 for each performance.  The Concert Series donates a portion of the proceeds to support St. Hugh’s Grove Outreach charity, which has provided food and household goods to low-income families in West Coconut Grove for the past 27 years.
