The ECU Summer Guitar Festival is open to students of all skill levels who wish to acquire or improve skills on the classical guitar. The artist-faculty, which consists of world-class concert artists and teachers, draws talented students from across the United States and abroad as well as from North Carolina. Area concertgoers can also hear these gifted musicians perform in recital during the workshop. We are extremely excited to have Grammy award winning artist and long time festival mainstay Jason Vieaux return this year. In addition we welcome, for the very first time, Stephen Robinson, a preeminent performer and teacher for many years on the national and international scene. Other returning guest artists include festival favorites the Akerman Teixeira duo, rising young virtuoso Isaac Bustos, another long time festival favorite, Andrew Zohn, 2015 solo competition winner Colin Fullerton, and festival director Elliot Frank.
Festival activities include master classes with the concert performers, public recitals, competitions for aspiring artists, and lectures on various topics.
