LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - If you love
classical guitar you will want to stop by the University of Louisville.
The world's leading classical
guitarists are at UofL for the Guitar Foundation of America Convention and Competition.
The event is the largest of its kind
in North America. As many as 700 guitarists attend the event to learn from the
masters and compete for a recording contract and 50-city tour.
Guitar Foundation of America President
Martha Masters explained, "It's kind of like the Olympics of classical guitar.
To see who's going to win, it's very exciting and it's very intense. And to see
the best of the young artists of the world. It's pretty amazing. We haven't had
an American winner in 13 years."
Concerts will be held at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday
and Friday in Comstock Concert Hall at the UofL School of Music. Tickets are
$30 general admission, $15 students.
