The City of the Guitar

luthierGuitar things are starting to happen in Granada! Friday saw eleven or twelve guitar-makers meeting with conservatory students and presenting their work. The idea is a good one and we hope it will be repeated next year with even more guitar-makers present. The evening wrapped up with a concert by guitar students from the Conservatory of Motril. I only managed to stay for the solo pieces but was very impressed with the level of playing.

May will bring a fascinating exhibition hosted by Caja Rural (one of the local banks) and organized by guitar hero Gloria Medina who is also putting on the 3rd edition of the Manuel de Falla garden concerts this summer.

Then we have the CSU summer course starting in July  

  webpage  Apparently the deadline has been extended so there is still time to get on board. I have heard through the grapevine that there will be other guitar-related activities coinciding with this.
