Tania Mesa, violinist

In partnership with Acción Cultural Española (AC/E), The Billings Symphony is committed to bringing to the stage artists of Spanish heritage. AC/E, a public entity dedicated to fostering and promoting the culture and heritage of Spain, encourages the mobility of Spanish professionals and creators, and with their support, we are proud to share the music of Tania Mesa, violin, and Patricia García Gil, piano, on Thursday, April 7, at the Billings Depot, 2310 Montana Avenue.

Tania Mesa is a crossover-style violinist and singer from Canary Islands in Spain. She leads her own band, Tania Mesa & The Mediterranean Soul, and studied classical violin at ESMUC- Barcelona and contemporary music at Berklee. She has toured worldwide with The World Orchestra (UNESCO); the Berklee Silent Film Orchestra; with well-known artists such as Manolo García, Joan Manuel Serrat, and performed with Dream Theater and Alejandro Sanz.

Patricia García Gil is a versatile pianist who has toured the world performing recitals and concerts as a soloist with different orchestras in Europe, China, and the USA. Her concerts have been recorded and showcased by the Spanish National Radio, Radio Catalunya, and Radio Television Hong Kong, attracting the interest of the press, that has described her performances as “set apart by consummate musicianship, confident technique and elegant interpretation that manifested itself across the wide range of repertoire on her program,” “tremendous energy and precision,” “clean, sensitive playing,” “originality, genius, mastery, virtuosity, interaction with the listeners.”
