Building on the tremendous success of Boston Guitar Fest (which this year returns for its 12th season, from June 28 – July 2, 2017 at New England Conservatory and Northeastern University) this year will inaugurate the first year of a new festival:
Salzburg Guitar Fest.
This will run from May 24 – 27, 2017 at the Unviersitaet “Mozarteum” in Salzburg Austria, where Eliot has been on the faculty since 1989 and has mentored various generations of astonishing guitar talent. Many of Eliot’s Salzburg students have since achieved important international career as performers, educators and leaders in the arts. Number of them will be performing and teaching at the Festival including Joaquin Clerch, Marco Tamayo, Kostas Tosidis, Cecilio Perera, Danilo Cabaluz, Yvonne Zehner, Christina Schorn and more.
Like Boston Gutar Fest Salzburg Guitar Fest will be an international festival featuring terrific concerts, exciting master classes, a competition for guitar performance and much more. The festival is largely run by students who participate in every aspect of the festival. A strong interdisciplinary emphasis includes a special series of master classes entitled:
“Non -guitarists teach guitarists.”
