Born in Barcelona in 1953, Gloria Villanueva began her first courses in Music Theory and Piano at the age of nine. Later she started studying guitar and obtained an Advanced Degree in Guitar at the Music Conservatory of the Liceo in Barcelona. In 1976, she graduated with a degree in Psychology at the University of Barcelona. For several years, she combined her activity as a children’s psychotherapist with various post-graduate courses in the field of music. We will share some of her most exciting works, including her Rapsòdia Simfònica for orchestra, guitar, and harp.
