In September 2016, Sergio was awarded the ABRSM and Christopher Hogwood Scholarships to pursue his undergraduate studies at the Royal Academy of Music with Elizabeth Kenny where he studied the lute, theorbo and baroque guitar.
A sought after continuo player, Sergio is the principal lutenist of The English Concert, La Nuova Musica, Early Opera Company and was a “New Ensemblist” with Arcangelo from 2020-2022. He also plays with The Irish Baroque Orchestra, Ensemble Marsyas, English Baroque Soloists and Fretwork.
