This year will be our longest workshop to date. Seven days of ensemble, masterclasses, yoga, rockshop, concerts, and even a visit by our guest artist, XuFei Yang. We are having a GREAT TIME!
We just received this last night from Eliot Fisk, one of the world’s leaders for classical guitar!
YGW has become an absolutely vital part of Boston GuitarFest and in fact an important event on the Boston cultural calendar. Involving young people in passionate music making is not just good for their development and advantageous to their future, but it makes our country and our world a better place. YGW’s knowledgeable, passionate, and unique faculty invariably create a welcoming and nurturing environment while challenging the young to surpass themselves. Parents and kids will want to take advantage of this fabulous opportunity for joyous music making on the world’s most popular instrument—the guitar!
