Trombonist & Euphonium Player – The Jazzaar Festival Latin Band

José Manuel Vázquez Calatayud began his musical studies in 2007 under the direction of Raúl Galán Cerveró. In 2011 he started his professional studies at the Conservatory of Music of La Coruña, where he was twice declared winner of the Soloist Competition and received the final prize. In 2017 he moved to Palma de Mallorca. He studied music interpretation at the Conservatori Superior de música de les Illes Balears with Josep Burguera and Àngel Torres. At this conservatory, he was selected as the winner of the soloist competition and received an extraordinary prize to complete his studies. Recently, he also unanimously won the first prize at the Paris 2022 Tuba Competition and the second prize at the Philip Jones Competition. He received another first prize at the Jeju International Brass and Percussion Competition. He has performed as a soloist in France, Korea, Switzerland, and Spain. He currently lives in the Swiss city of Lucerne, where he continues his studies with Thomas Rüedi and Nils Wogram.

“My previous experience in the world of jazz is not yet very extensive, but I expect to gain experience on occasions such as the Jazzaar Festival. The opportunity to perform with prominent musicians and by sharing the stage with them is the kind of experience from which I think I can learn the most. The references I have received from this event could not be better. I’m really looking forward to it and I’m sure it will be great.”
