Spanish Saxophonist Manu Brazo is one of his generation’s most versatile young musicians with repertoire ranging from Gershwin to Milhaud and Hindemith. After studying in Seville at the Conservatorio Superior de Musica Manuel Castillo, Manu went on to graduate from the Royal College of Music. He made his concerto debut with the Guildford Symphony Orchestra in 2016 and the following year performed with the London Sinfonietta. He has also played with the London City Orchestra, RCM Philharmonic, Orquest Betica de Camara and Orquesta Filarmonia de Granada.
