My name is Mariana Aulicino, and I’m from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I started studying violin when I was 16 years old. In the beginning, I chose to go to an institute – in that moment, it was the Collegium Musicum; however, a year later, I decided to study with a private tutor.
I studied and perfected my technique with different classical music professors, while I was immerse in the genre. After two years I started plying in a youth symphonic orchestra: Colon Theatre Academic Orchestra. During this period, I toured England and Germany, a memorable experience.
Afterwards, I played in a number of symphonic orchestras, such as the Orquesta de Cámara del Congreso de la Nación (in which I played as a soloist in the golden room of the prestigious Colon Theatre), Orquesta Sinfónica de la Universidad de Lanús, Orquesta Sinfónica Municipal de Avellaneda, Orquesta de la Sociedad Haendel de Buenos Aires, Orquesta del Programa de Música Antigua de Radio Nacional, Orquesta de Cámara Marta Argerich, amongst others. I was also a member of several opera orchestras, for example: the orchestra for La casa de la Ópera, Juventus Lírica and Buenos Aires Lírica. I participated in musical comedies, some of them are “Te Quiero, Sos Perfecto, Cambiá” (as a violin soloist), “Drácula”, “Las Mil y Una Noches”, “El Jorobado de París”, “La Rotativa del Maipo”, “La importancia de Llamarse Wilde” (as a soloist), “El Retrato de Dorian Grey”, “Maipo, Siempre Maipo”, “Despertar de Primavera” (as a soloist), “Cabaret” (as a soloist), “A Imagen y Semejanza” and “Roja” (as a soloist).
In my career in pop music I’ve been fortunate to play with great national and international artists such as Maná, Cristian Castro, Cacho Castaña, Jairo, Guillermo Klein, Liliana Herrero, Pablo Ruiz, The Beats, Nube 9, amongst many others. I’ve also recorded for the albums of the mexican pop singer Thalia (album “El Sexto Sentido”), the folkloric artist Jorge Rojas (album “La Vida”), and the Argentinean singer Valeria Lynch (disco “Valeria Lynch Sinfónica”).
Five years ago I began studying improvisation and rock songwriting. I started my own experimental rock band, “No Hay Banda”. I also formed a string quartet, “Auguri”, in which I play violin and also produce and arrange the songs: rock and pop tunes from all eras.
