Many thanks to our audiences for making the Fifth International Tucson Guitar Festival such a success! And a special thanks to our guest artists, the Duo Assad and Grisha Goryachev, and the students of the Bolton Guitar Program. It was certainly an exciting week!
In December, our all guitar orchestra plays its new program under our new conductor, Jose Luis Puerta. Join us! There is a rehearsal at the Guitar in the Woods community event on December 5. This free event starts at 6:30 Pm in the Woods Memorial Library on First between Fort Lowell and Prince. Space is limited.
The concert itself is also free: It is on Saturday, December 14 at 4 PM. Please note the new time! We thought a later start made sense since we can have the morning free and/or have Happy Hour or early dinner after a 4 PM concert! Let us know how you like the time.
The orchestra has been hard at work under its new conductor, doctoral degree candidate Jose Luis Puerta. They have some fun new pieces to share with us in a concert that features music from around the world and across the centuries!
The concert is at Grace St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 2331 Adams (just south of the Arizona Inn). There is free parking. This event is great for families (although perhaps not for very young children). There is no fee, although the Society appreciates a freewill offering to help us with expenses.
Every year we welcome the newest winner of the prestigious Guitar Foundation of America Competition. Last year was Vladimir Gorbach of Siberia, and this year we have another Russian! He is Rovshan Mamedkuliev of Azerbaijan. Each of these winners is an amazing talent! You can hear tomorrow's star today…
The concert is Thursday, January 23 at 7 PM. Tickets are $25 for the General Public, $20 for members and $15 for students (at the door, ID required). Discounts available for advance sales.
