Guitar takes centre-stage in Gran Canaria 

PAGE 30  GUITAR TAKES

The Alfredo Kraus Auditorium in Gran Canaria and Guía council are jointly organising the “Maestro en Guitarra” concerts, within the XXIV International Classical Guitar Encounter “Ciudad de Guía”.

This year’s edition of the Masters in Guitar cycle is highlighted by the absolute prominence of three female performers: Margarita Escarpa, Evangelina Mascardi and Helen Sanderson.

The Auditorium is joined on this occasion by the XXIV International Classical Guitar Encounter “Ciudad de Guía” a worldwide reference in this instrument that is held annually in this municipality of Gran Canaria

The concerts will take place on December 5th, 6th and 9th in the Chamber Hall of the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium in the Gran Canaria capital and on the 4th, 7th and 8th in the Casa de la Cultura de Guía.

José María Ramírez, coordinator of the meeting and one of the interpreters and professors, highlighted the high quality that this appointment is taking every year and almost unavoidable for lovers and professionals of classical guitar. In addition, he valued the participation of conservatories and music schools on the island. The twenty-fourth edition of the Guitar Encounter will once again feature an extensive programme of activities, from individual classes, chamber music, guitar orchestra and two interesting presentations by Laura Vega (‘Woman and Guitar) and the luthier Yuna Park (‘ The construction of guitars’).
