Perform alongside the UCGO
Festival participants have the unique opportunity to play with a large ensemble, the Utah Classical Guitar Orchestra, directed by Maestro Gabino Flores. Parts for all levels and abilities will be sent in advance. Rehearsals are held Friday and Saturday, with a final performance on Saturday afternoon.
Observe our distinguished guest faculty in a classroom setting. Space is limited for players - contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Please join us for great performances on both days. The Friday evening concert will be held at the Eccles Theater Regent Street Black Box. Tickets are available through ArtTix, artsaltlake.org. Festival participants will receive a code for a discounted price. Admission to the Saturday evening concert at the Sorenson Unity Center is included in Festival tuition. Tickets for the public are available at ucgs.org and at the door.
Free events include a "Duo Showcase" by Festival participants on Friday afternoon and a concert by the UCG Orchestra on Saturday.
Open for ages 6 to adult, this experience allows soloists to perform on stage and receive feedback from our guest faculty. While not a formal competition, a player from each age group will be selected to perform on the student concert Saturday afternoon.
