ACG Ensemble Festival

ACG Fest 2020

Austin Classical Guitar’s Annual Ensemble Festival
Friday & Saturday, April 24 & 25, 2020

ACG Fest is two days filled with performing, listening, and laughter to celebrate the joys of making music together. In addition to individual ensemble showcases, we’ll collaborate as a group on two pieces — including the winning entry of our annual Composition Competition — and perform them on Saturday night to open the final concert of ACG’s 2019/20 International Series, featuring the incomparable Italian artists Lorenzo Michelli and Mateo Mela of Soloduo.


Registration is now closed for the 2020 ACG Fest, as we have reached capacity! We will happily put you on a wait list and let you know if a space opens up.

To get on the wait list, please email Joe Williams at [email protected]. Thank you!
