I’m so excited about our 2013-2014 season! 

Among other things, it’s my tenth season with Austin Classical Guitar as Executive Director.

I am especially pumped that we’ve brought on board two of the most exciting musicians and intellects I know: Dr. Joseph V. Williams II and Dr. Thomas Echols.

Meet us for dinner next Saturday night at Gusto Italian Kitchen at 5:45!  Gusto is doing one more tasty $17 prix fixe dinner this summer – this time before our Pablo Garibay concert (menu below).

For dinner reservations, call Gusto at (512) 458-1100.  Concert info here.

Joe is a brilliant composer and guitarist, he wrote Austin Pictures for us in 2011, and rarely have I been so excited as when he accepted my offer to become our first-ever Composer In Residence.  Get ready for magic!

Tom is one of the most engaging, broadly educated and creative people I’ve ever met, and he will be sharing his knowledge, and his infectious enthusiasm for excellence in art, in our new Insights classes – which I hope to attend myself!

Tom’s Insights classes will be Wednesday evenings from 7-9PM, last for four weeks, and will directly precede the event they pertain to.  So stay tuned, we’ll have them up online for registration soon.  His first course will be: Pepe Romero & Guitar Music of Spain (9/11-10/2)!

So c’mon out to dinner Saturday and meet these extraordinary guys, and then we’ll all head over for a great concert by one of Mexico’s greatest young classical guitar stars.
