Festival is an annual event hosted by different colleges and universities throughout the region. It was 
established in 1991 to foster camaraderie and pedagogical exchanges between classical guitar teachers and 
students; to provide performance and learning opportunities for student ensembles; and to contribute to the 
overall artistic and cultural enrichment of classical guitar ensemble audiences. The Festival also has worked 
to increase the ensemble repertoire by commissioning pieces for the festival orchestra. The first festival 
was hosted by Millikin University in Decatur, IL, and since has been sponsored by schools in Illinois, 
Missouri, Michigan, and Indiana. Guest artists have included such renowned groups as the Los Angeles 
Guitar Quartet, the Assad Duo, Los Romeros, and Duo Melis. The weekend will consist of performances 
by participating guitar ensembles, masterclasses, and a concert by this year’s guest artists, the Minneapolis 
Guitar Quartet. The festival guitar orchestra will perform new works by James McGuire and Andrew
