VANCOUVER CLASSICAL GUITAR FESTIVAL

LATE NIGHT

TALKS/CONCERTS

The Late Night Talks are a variety of lectures that target other aspects of guitar playing or put together some of the concepts explored in the daily workshops.

The Latin American Guitar Night 2.0 is a workshop with guest faculty David Sossa where he will explore with participants the role of the guitar in Latin American folk music and how to create such diverse rhythmic patterns on the guitar. The guitar is an essential part of Latin American folk music and participants can expect to dive into the side of guitar that directly or indirectly informs and enriches some of our most favourite repertoire. In this workshop, participants can expect to actively participate in creating Latin American rhythms and strumming patterns that pertain to folk music. 

The Improvisation Night, led by internationally renowned composer Itamar Erez, is an introduction into improvisation for classical guitarists.
