The 'Classical Minds' Festival is open to classical guitarists of all levels and ages. Our theme this year is an all Texas guitar faculty which includes Adam Holzman, Isaac Bustos, Chad Ibison, Jay Kacherski, Mark Anthony Cruz, Enric Madriguera, Jonathan Dotson, Rachel Loss-Cutler-Hull, Marc Garvin, Solero Flamenco, and Valerie Hartzell.
The goal of this festival is to increase each student's sight-reading abilities, gain ensemble experience through the Guitar Orchestra Class and of course, reach individual goals through the private lessons and/or master classes.
The competition has three divisions: Open Division (all ages), High School Level (13-19 - must be enrolled in High School or have recently graduated), and Junior (9-13; must be enrolled as a festival participant).
