Sergio Bucheli guitar
Born in Mexico City, Sergio Bucheli started playing the classical guitar before moving to the UK to study at the Yehudi Menuhin School thanks to a bursary funded by the Rolling Stones. In September 2016, Sergio was awarded the ABRSM and Christopher Hogwood Scholarships to pursue his undergraduate studies at the Royal Academy of Music (RAM) with Elizabeth Kenny where he studied the lute, theorbo and baroque guitar. A sought after continuo player, Sergio is a member of Harry Bicket’s The English Concert and is also a “New Ensemblist” with Jonathan Cohen’s Arcangelo. Recent highlights include Wigmore Hall concerts with Arcangelo, Peter Whelan’s Ensemble Marsyas and The English Concert featuring soloists such as Alina Ibragimova, Iestyn Davies, Carolyn Sampson and Louise Alder. Sergio also plays with The English Baroque Soloists, Early Opera Company, Irish Baroque Orchestra and recently recorded a Matthew Locke CD with Fretwork. Sergio is a keen chamber musician and has recently taken part in the 2020 West Wycombe Festival which was held online where Sergio played with Lawrence Power, Timothy Ridout and John Myerscough among others. He also recently performed a programme of English music alongside countertenor Tim Mead for the 2021 Shipwright/Queille Festival. Sergio is passionate about outreach performance and was the 2020-2021 Wigmore Hall Learning/ Open Academy Fellow alongside his chamber music ensemble “Nobody’s Jig”.
