What a year Austin Classical Guitar Youth Orchestra has had!

The group of dedicated young players performed for thousands at both the Long Center and the Paramount Theatre before our FlamencoAustin productions.  They gave the world premiere of a new work by our Composer in Residence – and are gearing up for another premiere currently.  ACGYO was even the subject of a short documentary film:

Join us this Sunday, May 11th at 5PM at St. Martin’s Lutheran Church (606 W. 15th Street) for their free, final recital of the season!


On the program is Joseph Williams’ Hinsleyian Overture (commissioned by the ACG Board of Directors on the occasion of my 10th year as Executive Director), a piece by Luigi Boccherini they’ll play with 17-year-old super-talented cellist Rachel Rivero, and the world premiere of a new work by a Crockett High School guitar student Ike Katula – who has spent the semester working with Joseph Williams as part of his ACG Composer’s residency!
