Inés is a cellist based in Manchester and currently in her final year of study at the Royal Northern College of Music.

Inés Mota, originally from Valencia, Spain, began studying the Cello when she was seven. At the age of twelve she began receiving lessons by Iván Balaguer, Principal Cellist of Orquesta de Valencia. Inés has performed with a range of spanish and EU orchestras, including BBC Philarmonic Orchestra, Opera North, Manchester Camerata, Master Symphony Orchestra, Orquesta Filarmónica de Requena, Orquesta Sinfónica de Castellón, etc. At the age of 15 Inés was awarded a concert as soloist with Valencia Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Yaron Traub. That same year, she received the first prize at the Young Artists Competition, given by the Autonomous Community of Valencia. In 2011, Inés was invited by the Orchestra Orquesta Filarmónica de Requena (Valencia) to perform the Dvorák’s Cello Concerto on tour under the baton of Francisco Melero. A few months after, Inés was the winner of the "2011 Fin de Grado Prize". In June 2013, Inés won the Valencia Concerto Competition which led to a performance of Tchaikovky’s Pezzo Cappricioso at Palau de la Música, accompanied by Valencia Symphony Orchestra. She is currently in her 4th year of study under the prestigious cellist Karine Georgian at the RNCM (Manchester) and she has recently won the Raphael Sommer Cello Prize (March 2015), 1st Prize Cum Laude with the Aeris Trio at the 63rd European Music Festival for Youth in Neerpelt, Belgium, and the RNCM Schubert Prize

Grazia Strings played at my wedding recently, performing from guest arrival, during the ceremony, and during drinks reception. Communication prior to the event was excellent, Ines was friendly and helpful throughout. Their performance on the day was fantastic, so many guests commented on how well they set the scene and on the quality of the songs they played. An excellent addition to our wedding day and at a very reasonable price!

Everyone loved the music our trio played. They were a great addition to the ambience and, dare I say, class of the event. Flexible too. Steve

We recently asked Grazia to play at our wedding and they were just brilliant! They played classical music during the church ceremony and in the evening swapped to their electric strings and were just fantastic. They were so helpful beforehand, making sure we were happy with the music, suggesting what would be good, and they really helped to made our day very special. Thanks girls!
