Alejandra Díaz will begin her new job at the Israel Symphony Orchestra Rishon LeZion in March 2022.

​Díaz was awarded the LSO String Experience Scheme in 2013 and became the first Spanish cellist in history to perform alongside the London Symphony Orchestra — as part of two concerts paying tribute to Claudio Abbado and Pierre Boulez at the Barbican Hall.

Obtaining a Masters of Performance at London's Guildhall School of Music & Dance in 2014 under Prof. Ursula Smith, Díaz is a former prize winner of the Carnegie Palmer Award of the Worshipful Company of Musicians, and a finalist of the Pablo Casals International Award.

As a principal cellist, she has appeared with the Orquesta Sinfónica Vigo 430, the Atlantic Coast Orchestra, the London Metropolitan Sinfonia, and the Guildhall Symphony Orchestra.

Alongside her performing career, Díaz holds a Masters in Teaching at the Santiago de Compostela University — where she currently serves as a cello professor. She also taught at the Juan Sebastían Elcano School from 2018-2020.

Díaz plays on a modern cello by Apostol Kaloferov (c.1990) and a Paolo Pamiro bow made in Málaga (c.2019).​
