Adriana Figueroa Mañas graduated in 1997 from the school of music of the National University of Cuyo, where she earned the title “Licenciada in Music and Flute”. She attended many courses given by important and well-known flautists from Argentina, as well as several other countries. She also took several courses in jazz, improvisation, chamber music composition and orchestration, including contemporary orchestration techniques with a teacher from Buenos Aires. She has been a participant in several very important music meetings with eminent musicians and conductors. She has also played solos in the professional symphonic orchestras of Mendoza.
Adriana frequently takes part in a variety of musical groups, playing various styles including chamber music and popular music such as fusion and jazz. She plays the saxophone (alto and soprano), flute, piccolo, and contralto flute, and in many cases, she enjoys playing her own compositions and arrangements.
While studying at the National University of Cuyo, she was a member of the youth orchestra from its inception. While with this orchestra, she played part of her own work as a saxophone soloist.
She is also the saxophonist in the “West Jazz Band”, a traditional jazz band that was created seventeen years ago. The have participated in some very important performances in Mendoza, as well as jazz festivals in other provinces of Argentina. In 1990, they were awarded the prize for the best jazz band in Mendoza. Adriana was also the first flautist in the Vanguard Symphonic Orchestra, in Mendoza.
She was the flautist in a wood ensemble (“Enssamble Universidad”), which played her works and arrangements as part of their music repertoire. This ensemble won first prize in the Antorchas chamber competition, with her works for ensemble such as “Toys” and “Suite Infantil” (1998).
Adriana currently teaches music, composition, sax and flute. She has worked with children since 1992. She has formed an instrumental group with some of the children, and she and her pupils have recorded two cassettes of children’s songs. She composed the music and lyrics, and created the choral and instrumental arrangements.
She sang with the children, played the flute, saxophone, and synthesizer, and has worked with children in artistic schools as well.
She has sent her works, for long time, to her friend and mentor, Barry M. Volkman, who is a composition professor and the former conductor of the Hallandale Orchestra. Professor Volkman sent her first classes and exercises by mail for several years, and they remain in contact via the Internet.
Some of Adriana’s works can be obtained on the Internet in Inter-note and Hildegard publishing a company based in germany and EEUU. Through this website, people around the world can learn about Adriana and her work. Some of her other works are available for free to people in the USA from the Fleisher Collection of Philadelphia. Other works are in international cathalogos for musicians, and from other webs, and diferents universities like Harttford, Alaska, Universidad Nacional de Cuyo (as repertory of the Master of Latinoamerican music , for musicians)
Her music can also be found in Germany in the “Archiv Frau Ut Musik”. This library has a special part dedicated to female composers, as well as the music library of the International Women in Music Foundation (Fondazione Adquins Chitti-Italy). This last foundation sent funds to the composer to cover the shipping and copying costs to send her music to the foundation.
Adriana is a member of the International Alliance of Women in Music (IAWM), where she writes articles for the IAWM journal as a unique composer representing Argentina.
She is member of FADEC, too (argentinian foundation of woman composers) with address in Buenos Aires. This organization difuses the music of women composers in Argentina.
Since Adriana is also a technician in computation, the computer has become a musical tool for her, and she makes full use of all available devices and programs for musical composition, as well as communications tools, such as the Internet. She has completed master courses in Latino-American music, at the University of Cuyo in Mendoza, Argentina.
All of Adriana’s music has been distributed by herself, with the help of musicians from other countries. This is because her native Argentina lacks support or protection for local and young composers that are not recognized by official organizations and orchestras. New music from young composers and academics is not well promoted in Argentina. As a result, Adriana works very hard in her pursuit of success with her music.
Adriana currently teaches music, composition, orchestration, flute and sax, and has many works, premiered around the world, that take part of repertories of orchestras, groups, and musicians from different Countries like Argentina, Brazil, Canadá, Germany, Italy, Spain, Uruguay, Chile, Colombia, Australia, China, Suecia, United States, etc…
She has some prizes and honored mentions in Argentina and other Countries like Italia, United States, etc.
Recently, she received a Homage for her contribution to the academic music in Mendoza, this Homage was doing in a concert (with her music and the other 4 women composers who exist in Mendoza, in the homage too ) as the end of a proyect of research of the contemporary women composers and their music in Mendoza, by professors of the National University of Cuyo.(may 2009)

Actually, in May , 2009, in the Facultad de Artes de la Universidad Nacional de Cuyo, there was a research by academic professors of this Arts Faculty, about the music in Mendoza and women composers of chamber and orchestral music living in Mendoza . They give her and the others a plaque and reconigtion for their contribution to the Art and Culture in Mendoza. This was an homage concert where their works were perfomed by wellknown musicians from the province.
