Utah Classical Guitar Festival

12 Aug

08-11-2017 to 08-12-2017 – Utah Classical Guitar presents its first Classical Guitar Festival on August 11 and 12 at the University of Utah Fine Arts West building. We hope to bring the together all members of the guitar community, including teachers, players, students of all ages, and music enthusiasts in search of great artists in concert.

Share your talents on stage in the juried performance for soloists ages 5 and up. Participants will receive comments from the judges, and one player from each age group will be selected to perform on the Saturday afternoon concert. Teachers wishing to explore curriculum and techniques for developing or expanding a classroom guitar program can sign up for 4-14 hours of professional development workshops. Faculty artists Elliot Frank and Jon Yerby will perform evening concerts and teach master classes. Festival participants have the unique opportunity to play side-by-side with the Utah Classical Guitar Orchestra, directed by Gabino Flores, in two rehearsals and a public performance on Saturday afternoon. All levels are welcome! Visit UCGS.org for details and registration.
