He subsequently attended the University of Michigan Early Keyboard Institute and the American Bach Soloists Academy. Upcoming performances include a solo recital at the Central California Baroque Festival. He recently collaborated on a performance of JS Bach’s Mass in B Minor with the CCM Philharmonia and regularly plays continuo in recitals at CCM.

He has also performed in master class for Ed Parmentier and coached on fortepiano with Matthew Bengtson. Mr. Delfín earned a B.A. in history from the Johns Hopkins University where he first began to pursue research into era context and practice.
