In 2006, Leopoldo founded the Festival Internacional de Música Clásica de Ribadeo in Spain. His achievements include notable accolades such as winning the first prize at the Ciudad de Albacete National Piano Competition and being recognized as the best collaborative pianist at the Acisclo Fernández International Singing Competition.
