Students in the Lead Guitar class have been quite busy this year! In addition to lots of practice in the classroom, they played several pieces with a three-part harmony in Council, then hosted Brasil Guitar Duo and Lead Guitar founder Brad Richter for an incredible all-school performance, then took to the stage at the Children’s Museum for a Saturday event. Sky Islands graduate and classical guitar virtuoso Tony Gonzales was there as well, playing a solo piece to accompany the students.
This year, Lead Guitar said a sad goodbye to our mentor and teacher Ivar Fojas, who upon completing his PhD in music, was fortunate enough to get a job at the University of Manila in the Philippines as a classical guitar professor! Thank you for all that you have done Ivar- you will be missed!
