Maestro Mejia was born in Honduras, but spent 15 years or so as a young adult studying in Germany where he received his Bachelor ‘s degree in Music Theory and Language and his Master’s in Composition at universities in Berlin and Trossingen. He also is a graduate and teacher in Orchestral Conducting and has a specialization in Music Composition for Film and Media.
While in Germany, he was the recipient of various awards including the Boris Blacher award and Karl Hoffer award. He was also awarded a scholarship for academic excellence by the Friedrich-Naumann foundation. Maestro Mejia returned to Honduras in 1996 and since then has been involved in cultural development, working as a teacher at major music schools all over the country.
He has been involved with many organizations in Honduras, including the National Symphony Orchestra of Honduras, the Opera Orchestra of the Music Foundation of Honduras, and the Orquesta Filarmonica de Honduras. His compositions have been performed in many countries in Europe and South America, Japan and the USA. We are pleased to include one of them in our program for you on April 12.
We are thrilled to have such an accomplished conductor and composer as our guest for our next concert. Please make a special effort to attend forward the details of this concert to everyone you know with connections to the Latin community in Vancouver, or just to those with a love of Latin music!
