About the Artist

Jeremy Garcia earned a Bachelor’s degree in Classical Guitar Performance from Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi and a Master’s Degree from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX.  In 2009, he co-founded Solero Flamenco, Houston's Premier flamenco performance company along with Irma La Paloma and the two subsequently co-founded and directed the Houston Spanish and Flamenco Festival (2011-2016).

 

As a soloist and composer, he performed all over the United States.  He has also collaborated with the Fort Bend Symphony, Brazosport Symphony, and Helena Symphony in Montana.  In each of those performances, Jeremy was asked to play the famous “Concerto de Aranjuez” by Joaquín Rodrigo, as well as an original composition entitled “Suite Andaluz” for Solero Flamenco with Orchestra.  He has also recorded two CD's, García y Reyna's, Baile del Sol and Café Khytaro's, Distancia.  Jeremy has performed in numerous festivals as a soloist as well as a collaborator with many top flamenco artists.
