We have always done the FMEA State Guitar Festival in Tampa. Started with one ensemble and 18 students. Last year we did 3 ensembles and 70 students. It was a nice day event.
This year I took my 2 younger ensembles (45 students) to the FMEA, Tampa event again. Next week I am taking my Guitar Orchestra to New York to perform in concert at the Long Island Gutiar Festival. We are bringing 24 students and have programmed among other works: Kalimba by Jurg Kindle, All In A Days Work and Fresco – both by Rex Willis, Flight of the Dragon by Jeffery Tanner, Daydream by Gian Paolo Lopresti, Aire on Two Caneries arr. by me and Letter from Home by Pat Metheny, also arr. by me.
