MANDOLIN AND GUITAR CHAMBER MUSIC WORKSHOP WITH KEITH HARRIS

Posted By Ebaa Khamas, Monday, December 10, 2018
An Activity of The Mandolin Academy in Venice
 
WHEN:
February 21 – 25, 2019
Thursday evening through Monday morning
WHERE:
Hungry Monk Music
Charleston, SC
WORKSHOP FEE:
$350 [includes personal internet coaching prior
to the workshop]
REGISTRATION/LOGISTICS:
Please register by January 11, 2019, as space is
limited. Additional information is available at
MUSIC:
Players of all standard instruments in a plucked string ensemble
/ mandolin orchestra are welcome. If you feel nervous about
whether you meet the technical level required, please talk to us
about adapting music. Keith firmly believes it’s more enjoyable
to play fewer notes but play them nicely. On the other hand,
nobody should be afraid of being under-challenged. The
workshop is a special opportunity for anybody, and especially so
for classical guitarists seeking ensemble experience. 
Please feel free to contact Keith directly at
keith.harris@mandolin.academy for any issues related to the
workshop music.

Classical Mandolin Society of America (CMSA)

Travel with Classical Guitar magazine and experience the music and history of Spain as visitors rarely do!

Posted By Ebaa Khamas, Tuesday, December 4, 2018
With its lively markets, world-renowned museums, brightly colored gardens, flavorful cuisine, and architecture from centuries gone by, Spain strikes the perfect balance between old and new, traditional and modern, urban jungle and green parks. And, for the musician or music lover, the word Spain is practically synonymous with the word guitar.
 
Our friends at Classical Guitar magazine have arranged a special, music-focused journey through southern Spain. Accompanied by local guides and Thérèse Wassily Saba, guitarist and long-time editor at Classical Guitar magazine, you can explore the music, culture, history, and heritage of Spain on a 10-day, 11-night sojourn. With personal, behind-the-scenes access to artists, luthiers, and experts, this is your chance to experience Spain as visitors rarely do.
 
Some itinerary highlights include:
Enjoy a performance by Ignacio Rodes of the Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquín Rodrigo and attend a private lecture with him.
Tour the Guitar Museum dedicated to guitarist and pioneering luthier Antonio de Torres.
Explore Siguenza - from the looming 5th century fortress to the workshop of Jose Luis Romanillos.
Visit Ángel Barrios House to explore the drawings, paintings, musical scores and letters dedicated to this composer.
Meet José Enrique and Cristina Ramírez, the 5th generation of Ramírez makers, and learn how the guitars are built.
Soak up the atmosphere and tastes at an authentic Granadan olive oil farm.

The Volterra Project

Posted By Ebaa Khamas, Friday, November 2, 2018
Since 2007 the Volterra Project has brought together students and professional guitarists from all over the world, creating a completely new concept of artistic creativity, inspiring dozens of young musicians, and building new bridges and interactions between theories and practices.
 
One of the focuses of our mission is the reinforcement and the diffusion of classical guitar music. It became clear to us that one wonderful and well-rounded way to strengthen this aspect would be to encourage the production of new works for the guitar. In occasion of the 13th edition of the Volterra Project, therefore,
we invite composers of all levels and backgrounds to submit their work for guitar duo, trio or quartet!
 
This year’s  jury will be formed by:
Dusan Bogdanovic (Serbia), Antigoni Goni (Greece), Luca Isolani (Italy), Maarten Vandenbemden (Belgium).

 

For more information regarding the application process and the Volterra Project in general, please see this page.
