George Sebastian Lopez, pianist, has been featured across the globe as recitalist, soloist with orchestra, and collaborator. Performing in Paris, London, Cologne, New York’s Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and in Los Angeles he has been hailed by the Los Angeles Times for his “musical perspective, continuity, and kaleidoscopic colors.” His recent tour of chamber music concerts in Australia garnered an invitation to the Kowmung Music Festival and his chamber music collaborations have included the Emerson String Quartet, the Rainier Quartet, the Incanto Ensemble of Germany, and the Aurea Ensemble of Providence, along with members of some of the top orchestras in the country.

Most recently, he performed a recital with cellist Emmanuel Feldman in Boston’s Jordan Hall, giving a world premiere performance of Jan Swafford’s “In Time of War” for cello and piano. Mr. Lopez has been an advocate for music education for many years and is a popular lecturer on the arts in New England.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Belize to Mayan parents, George Lopez started playing the piano at the fairly late age of 11. Upon returning to the U.S., he won his first orchestral competition at 14 in Texas and two years later was awarded a full scholarship to The Hartt School of Music. After graduating with honors, he went to Paris on a Franco-American study grant and was given a unanimous First Prize for the Diplome supérieur. He completed his Masters Degree cum laude in Amsterdam. He resides in Brunswick, Maine with his wife
and kids where he is the Beckwith Artist in Residence and conducts the Bowdoin Chamber Orchestra.
