Ms. Luque has recently recorded Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez with the London Symphony
Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios. She has been awarded First Prize at several international

Parkening International Master Class at Montana State University.

A native of Algeciras (Cadiz), Spain, Ms. Luque began playing the guitar when she was four,
started formal training when she was six, and gave her first concert at the age of seven.
After hearing her play, Ms. Luque was invited by the legendary Spanish guitarist Andres
Segovia to study privately with him.

where she also received a Master's degree from the Juilliard School in New York City.
