Noé Socha

Graduating Berklee guitarist Noé Socha will open this concert with a couple of solo, improvised pieces, and then his band will play a mix of blues and funk originals and covers.

Born in the agricultural heart of Italy, Socha began his jazz and blues guitar studies with Enrico Zanella. From 2004 to 2006, he participated in various acoustic guitar workshops and deepened his fingerpicking method with Franco Morone and Walter Lupi. In 2008, he participated in a Berklee seminar at Umbria Jazz and was selected, as part of an ensemble, to open Umbria Jazz Winter in Orvieto, Italy.

Socha then won a scholarship to attend Berklee’s Five-Week Summer Performance Program, where he was selected (out of 200 guitarists) to open the final concert at the Berklee Performance Center, and where he won a full-tuition scholarship to continue his studies at Berklee. Now his time at Berklee is coming to a close – but not before one more fantastic recital.
