Leonel Morales & Friends main objective is to showcase the young musicians who come here to learn, get to know new schools, and to clash with the international scene. For this reason, the 11th María Herrero International Piano Competition was born 13 years later and in a parallel way.

This competition, after so many years already, is a goal for many young pianists, since the fact of being able to put into practice what they have learned, to be able to face a jury and to put a program under stress, with the rigor that an international event of these characteristics demands, is an optimal preparation for what the future will bring.

They have been wonderful years, in which we have lived unique and unforgettable moments. Many great talents (who are not so young anymore), we met them here, and we are looking forward to meeting many more…

We invite you to visit the contest’s website and we encourage you all to participate. We are waiting for you!

Best regards

Leonel Morales
