This concert will feature the talents of a number of guitar students from across New York City — from Juilliard, Mannes, Manhattan School of Music, and Hunter College. This performance gives us the opportunity to spotlight young guitarists who are members of major teaching studios as part of our regular season. The program will draw from Latin American repertoire.
