Michael Vascones was born in 1998 in Queens, New York. Inspired by watching his father play, Michael began playing guitar at the age of twelve. Michael began his undergraduate studies at the Juilliard School in 2016, studying under Sharon Isbin. Michael is currently pursuing his graduate degree at Manhattan School of Music as a student of Mark Delpriora. Michael has won first prize in numerous competitions, most recently he won the National Federation of Music Clubs Classical Guitar Award.
Mark Delpriora has enjoyed a tripartite career. As a composer his works have been published by Editions Orphee, Bèrben, Les Productions ‘D’oz and Mel Bay. As a performer, Delpriora’s New York Debut was praised by the New York Times: “The first notes of Mark Delpriora’s guitar recital established him as a musician of authority. In a little Mozart transcription by Julian Bream he showed a rare feeling for the specific gravity of a Mozartean phrase, for the inevitability of its rise and fall. Delpriora is a guitarist to be reckoned with.” Delpriora serves as faculty member at the Manhattan School of Music and the Undergraduate Department and Extension Division at Juilliard.
