Boston GuitarFest IX: American Odyssey

This year we welcome back some of our favorite artists from past festivals: Oscar Ghiglia, Joaquin Clerch, Adam Holzman, Maarten Stragier and Zaira Meneses. But we also include exciting new faces: jazz pianist phenom, Donal Fox; flamenco whiz kid, Juanito Pascual; Spanish virtuoso, David Martínez and Bostonʼs own exceptional Boston Modern Orchestra Project (“BMOP”) led by its maverick Artistic Director, Gil Rose.

For the first time Boston GuitarFest will present works for guitar and orchestra including Joaquín Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez with Zaira Meneses as soloist; the world premiere of Pop Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra by Northeastern Prof. Anthony Paul De Ritis and the Boston premiere of Robert Beaserʼs Guitar Concerto, both with Eliot Fisk as soloist.
