2011 Boston GuitarFest Competition Winners

The Boston GuitarFest was held June 15-19, 2011. There were two competitions this year: a composition competition and an open division performance competition. Performance competitors had three rounds of mostly free choice repertoire with the exception of a required piece by an Italian composer (or something using an Italian theme).

    I like the photo of Fisk.

    It reminds me of the movie Blade… or if not that… then he looks like a white ghost with glasses.

      Ha, harsh! I’m predicting that I will get asked to take that photo down. Actually, I’m going to take it down right now and put up one of the three winners.

        Ah it wasn’t harsh but in jest.

        The new photo is good as well… like the Three Tenors
        … or perhaps a Mafia Trio!

        🙂

    There’s a problem with Jerome Mouffe’s link that you provide.

    Jerome Mouffe did not come first. What does that tell us?

    It does not matter if you’re able to play ultra-fast (Flight of the Bumblebee, Paganini Caprice 5)….

    It’s not automatically enough to win.
