The #BerkleeAnywhere Concert Series features Berklee College of Music and Boston Conservatory at Berklee students performing virtually, from wherever they are in the world. We may be separated by distance, but music empowers us to unite. Wherever you are, we invite you to connect with us every Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. EST on Berklee’s IGTV and Facebook pages.

About the Artist

Born in Havana in 1994, Sheila del Bosque Fuentes is one of the most in-demand young flutists in Cuba. Her music features contemporary and traditional Afro-Cuban music with the influence of European music and jazz. Throughout her career, del Bosque has been performing with orchestras such as the Orchestra of Lyceum Mozartiano from Havana, adjunct to Stiftung Mozarteum Salzburg; the National Orchestra of Cuba; and the Cuban European Youth Orchestra. She has played recorder, flute, and traverse baroque flute for many festivals of ancient music, playing in all the major theaters and festivals in Cuba as well as in South Korea, Mexico, Germany, and the U.S. She has played for important personalities like Pope Francis, Usher, Bon Jovi, and the Rolling Stones. In 2014, she won first prize in the chamber music competition Musicalia. 

Awarded a full-tuition scholarship to Berklee College of Music, del Bosque enrolled in January 2018 to study performance and film scoring. At Berklee, she has shared the stage with musicians such as Paquito d’Rivera, Berta Rojas, Aida Cuevas, and Omar Hakim. Her Sheila del Bosque Quartet represented Berklee when opening the 49th annual Next Generation Jazz Festival in Monterey and also recorded her original "Si mi isla fuese niño" for the Berklee YouTube channel. As a film composer, she has collaborated as an assistant composer for movies, shorts, documentaries, and video games, and she's currently working on her first feature, The Unicorn, by director Cris Hozven, as well as a short film for the Jane Goodall Institute.
