Hello

Miguel is a specialist in classical music and has developed a career as a composer, educator and vocal coach, as well as a choir and orchestra director. He spends his time between the stages and teaching feeling good in any of them.

About me

"Since I was a child, I felt strongly attracted to music, especially soundtracks, popular classical music, and rock. Later, I started to study piano, and from there, I knew my future was in music. So I moved to Manchester, U.K., in order to study a postgraduate degree in composition at the Royal Northern College of Music, where I was a pupil of Anthony Gilbert, among other great teachers and musicians. Before that, I had been studying composition, conducting, and singing; therefore, once I finished my postgrade, I started to teach singing and conducting, and of course I continued to perform."

As a performer, Miguel has had concerts in the U.S., Argentina, Honduras, Portugal, Spain, and, of course, Mexico. He has been awarded with many distinctions; some of them are the RNCM scholarship in 2002 and 2003, the Stimulus Program for Creation and Artistic Development in 2012 and 2017, and the Call for Creators and Artists, COVID 19 Contingency; these last 2 were awarded by the Mexican Government.
Some of his works include the following premieres: Sweet Water Poems, 2001; Whale Project (electroacoustic), 2003; String Quartet, 2004; Mini Piezas, 2010; A una dama bizca y hermosa, 2011; Incidental music to perform in real time for the movie The Gold Rush, 2012; and the international premiere of the children’s opera "Yorick, El Jorobado" (Yorick, The Hunchback) in Buitrago de Lozoya, Spain, 2015.

In 2010, he made his debut as a soloist in Europe with Benoit's role in the opera La Boheme at the Opera Festival of Obidos, Portugal. In 2011, he was a soloist in Samson et Dalila with Orquestra do Norte in Porto, Portugal. From 2007 to date, he has conducted and performed several operas (Dido & Aeneas, Suor Angelica, Die Zauberflöte, Bastien und Bastienne, La Serva Padrona, and Yorick, The Hunchback) with the group Opera Omnia, lyric galas, operatic galas, and international tours. Among those highlights are the tours in the Madrid Sierra (2015), Panama (2016), and Castilla y León, Spain (2019). In 2017, he conducted Mozart's Requiem in a concert series at San Martin Pinario Church in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. In 2020, he founded the Bajío Opera Studio with young singers from central Mexico, having many shows, among them the highlights: Tutto Mozart (opera arias by Mozart), Suor Angelica by Puccini, La serva padrona by Pergolesi, and many operatic concerts in Mexico City and other states in central Mexico. Many of his students have been granted scholarships in Mexico and abroad; likewise, they have participated in many singing competitions and festivals, obtained prizes, and received important mentions. In 2021, he founded the "Nodo Festival", focused on the performance of contemporary classical music. In 2022, he started the Music Academy for Kids, "MusiKids", with an exclusive teaching method. Since 2017, he is present on the main digital music platforms with different albums in different styles under the name Miguel Sagrero.
