Conrado was born in Alicante (Spain) in 1989. At sixteen years old, Conrado began his career as a marimbist taking lessons from the soloists Sisco Aparici (Valencia, Spain) and Katarzyna Myćka (Stuttgart, Germany). In 2011 he graduated with honors and in the same year he was accepted in the “Hanns Eisler” University of Music (Berlin, Germany), working with Rainer Seegers (Germany) and Li Biao (China).
During his career, Conrado attended numerous master classes with international marimba soloists, highlighting his participation in the “International Katarzyna Myćka Marimba Academy”.
At the age of eighteen, Conrado performed his first concert as a marimba soloist with the Brahms Society Symphony Orchestra. Since then, he has been performing as a soloist in concert halls throughout Spain, Germany, Poland and Switzerland among others and also with symphony orchestras from Alicante, Valencia, Cordoba (Spain), Göttingen (Germany), and the choir “Stuttgarter Hymnus Chorknaben” (Germany).
Due to his huge interest in spreading and developing the marimba, Conrado often works with the marimbists Sisco Aparici and Katarzyna Myćka, but also with important figures of other disciplines like the composers Marcus Paus, Karlos C. Seva, Jarrod Cagwin or Arkadiusz Kątny, the soprano Luca Espinosa, the dancer Leticia Ñeco or the stage directors Rafael Ricart and Andrés Moreno.
Conrado also took part in important festivals like Frankfurt Musikmesse (Germany), International Organ Festival of Alcoy (Spain), “Percute” Percussion Festival (Valencia, Spain) or Contemporary Music Festival of Sueca (Spain). In the latter one, he premiered in Spain Gerard Grissey’s Le Noir de l’Etoile together with “WAVE Grup de Percussió”, which he co-founded.
Among his most noteworthy projects, stands out his marimba duo with the Spanish percussionist Adrián García and “Chain Marimba Trio”, an international project together with the marimbists Shoko Sakai (Japan) and Arkadiusz Kątny (Poland), with whom he tours regularly in Spain, Germany and Poland.
Conrado won in 2010 the Music Performance Scholarship of “Asociación Pro-Música Amadeo L. Sala”, for his skills as a musician and his work and commitment to the future of the marimba. In 2011 he won the First Price in “ConUCOpercusión” International Marimba Competition (Cordoba, Spain) and in 2012 the Honorary Award in “Premio Sociedad de Conciertos” (Alicante, Spain).
Since 2011, Conrado Moya is an endorser of Marimba One.
