Guitar Duo sensation, Lima/Siqueira

May 25, 2023, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT Westchester Cultural Arts Center
Duo Siqueira Lima is one of the most prestigious chamber ensembles, having won the Profissionais da Música Award 2015 in Brazil and the International Press Award 2014 in the United States. Their work features music from the classical repertoire to popular music of Latin America.
The Siqueira Lima guitar duo is formed by Cecilia Siqueira, born in Uruguay, and Fernando de Lima from Minas Gerais, Brazil. Cecilia and Fernando are recognized for their technical and interpretive virtuosity and daring and original arrangements for two guitars. Since 2003, they have toured the world performing in major European capitals, and many cities in North America as well as sojourns to Africa and Russia. They are favorites throughout the major music centers in Latin America and in the prestigious halls of Lincoln Center (New York), New World Center (Miami), and Concertgebouw (Amsterdam) among others.

Fernando de Lima, born in 1978 in Sao Bent, became interested in classical guitar at the age of 12 and began studying with Luis Carlos da Silva, continuing with Marcelino Diogo Leite at the Conservatory “Maestro  Marciliano Braga ” in Varginha (MG) and his main master teacher was Henrique Pinto.

Besides soloist and chamber musician, Fernando develops a profound work as a repertoire researcher and arranger.

Cecilia Siqueira was born in Paysandú, Uruguay in 1982 coming from a family of several important musicians. Her parents Julio Siqueira and Raquel Franco, guitar teachers, headed Cecilia for the world of music at an early age and by the age of 15 years old she had won first prize in a national competition for guitar.

She studied in Paysandú with Hugo Acosta and in Montevideo with Professor Cesar Amaro Carlevaro. At the same time began performing at various Uruguayan venues and appears frequently on TV channels, becoming very popular in her country. In 2001 won the first prize at the International Guitar Competition Pro-Música/SESC in Caxias do Sul – RG and released her first solo album “Lo Vendra” in Germany, with a varied repertoire, from Bach to Agustin Barrios. As a result, she began a prolific international career, traveling through South America, Europe and the United States.
