This is it, the concert you’ve waited all season for.
The Wilmington Classical Guitar Society is pleased to bring the Guitar Foundation of America International Concert Artist Competition Winner Tour to Delaware for a fifth season! The prestigious GFA Competition is known for drawing the most talented competitors from around the world, and winning the competition is a coveted milestone in the careers of many young musicians. Don’t miss your chance to see this world-class artist.
This year’s GFA touring artist is Chinese guitarist Tengyue Zhang. The GFA prize leads him on a concert tour starting in 2018 of over 50 cities in North America, including his recital debut in Carnegie’s Weill Hall, with additional dates in Europe, South America and his native China. Tengyue recently completed his master’s degree in music with Sharon Isbin at The Juilliard School.
Join us for an afternoon with this rising star as he performs works by Tansman, Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Bach, Scarlatti, Dyens, Piazzolla, Holmes and Assad.
Guest Opening Artist: PCGS Youth Competition Winner Everett Shen
And don’t forget, if you held onto your ticket from our concert last month with Alec Holcomb, you can use that ticket to bring along your best friend who hasn’t already been to a Wilmington Classical Guitar concert free to our upcoming concert with Tengyue Zhang. Just purchase a ticket for yourself and exchange your Holcomb ticket for a an additional ticket to see TY. We hope you’ll take advantage of this offer and help us build our audience and share our love of classical guitar with those you care about.
Looking forward to seeing you on the 28th!
*TY will also be teaching a masterclass on April 27th. Auditing is always free, and there are still a couple performance slots open for a small tuition fee! Click this link for more details.
