We used both Miguel and his music partner for our entertainment. We had a small intimate affair and cannot say enough about how these two were so wonderful. They made the process stress free when we ended up moving the location of the ceremony last minute due to rain. Always extremely quick to respond to our questions and wants. Would recommend them to everyone looking to entertain guests in a very elegant atmosphere. Thank You so much for setting the atmosphere we wanted. I wish I could give you more than 5 stars.

Gretchen and Miguel provided beautiful and appropriate music at the Cultural Council's fundraising event, Arts, Champagne & Caviar. Their music provided the perfect background for this grand event. Both Gretchen and Miguel were very easy to work with and provided just the perfect suggestions to their location and music. We are very pleased.

Overview

As a soloist, Miguel plays mostly classical music. His repertoire ranges from Baroque composers through Cuban traditional songs, and includes easy listening music appropriated to other venues different than concerts such as wedding ceremonies, corporate events, and cocktails, among others.

Vero Duo (harp & guitar) focuses mainly on wedding ceremonies and background music. Its repertoire includes both classical pieces as well as contemporary popular standards.

Trinity Trio of Miami (flute, viola & guitar) features a repertoire for concert venues which includes a variety of pieces by different composers and a wide range of styles.

Miguel also offers other instrumental combinations with guitar (i.e. violin & guitar, flute & guitar, cello & guitar, etc.) upon request.

Additional Booking Notes

Either playing as a soloist or as an ensemble, Miguel and his partners are acoustic musicians. Thus, when amplification is required, it is meant just to boost the acoustic natural sound of their instruments.

Bio

Miguel Bonachea is one of the finest guitar teachers and classical music performers in Vero Beach. He plays concerts, performs at different venues, and teaches privately and online.

Mr. Bonachea performs not only as a soloist but also along with harpist Gretchen Cover (Vero Duo); flutist Karrie Griffiths and violist Viera Borisova (Trinity Trio of Miami); and other prominent musicians in the area.

Originally from Santa Clara, Cuba, Miguel has performed extensively as a soloist in countries of Europe, South America, the Caribbean, and in the United States. He has also been featured as a guest soloist with symphony and chamber orchestras in Cuba, Colombia, Bulgaria, Slovakia, and U.S.A.

Before moving to Florida by the end of 2010, he served for several years as Dean of the Conservatory of Music in Cali, Colombia, and Head of the Department of Guitar at the University EAFIT in Medellin, Colombia. He has also taught master classes at the Conservatory of Music and El Centro Cultural de España in Lima, Perú; La Casa de la Música in Quito, Ecuador, the University J. N. Corpas in Bogotá, Colombia, and the Festival of the Youth Guitar in Camagüey, Cuba, among others.

French philosopher and musician Marc Jean Bernard, PhD. stated: “In the very selected international world of classical guitar Miguel (Bonachea) is an impeccable and inspired interpreter in the highest meaning of the word, (…) his musical technique and culture of the instrument is based on a deep understanding of esthetic dimensions of music. (…) He is simultaneously a great guitarist and a great educator".
