    Considered an expert in the history and musical interpretation of the Latin American and Iberian vocal repertoire, Caicedo regularly gives concert-lectures and master classes, and serves as Artist-in-Residence at leading universities in the United States and Europe.

Nikos Stavlas, piano
Nikos was born in Greece in 1983. He studied at the Music School of Serres  (Elina  Grammatopoulou),  at  the  National  Conservatory  of Thessaloniki (Igor Petrin, Diploma and First Prize, 2003) and at the University  of  Macedonia, Thessaloniki (Vinia  Tsopela, BMus with distinction, 2005). In 2005 he moved to London, where he studied at the Royal College of Music  with Yonty Solomon and  Kathron Sturrock, financially supported both by the Greek State Scholarship Foundation  and  by the RCM, and obtained a  Master’s Degree in Piano Performance with distinction in 2007.
    He has participated in several competitions and won, among others, two first prizes in Pan-Hellenic competitions as well as two second prizes in the  G. Thymis Competition, Greece.
