Young Guitarists Showcase
Young guitarists from top New York City conservatoires perform repertoire from the Americas.
After a successful concert in 2019, Music of the Americas is pleased to invite a group of young guitarists currently enrolled in some of the City's leading conservatories—Juilliard, Mannes, Manhattan School of Music, and Hunter College—to perform on our virtual stage. This program gives us the opportunity to spotlight promising young guitarists and to help them familiarize themselves with the rich Latin American repertoire.
Please join the live chat on our YouTube channel during the concert.
