The repertoire is carefully selected to meet the needs of a diverse ensemble, so that all participants will be challenged appropriately. The music, ranging from folk song arrangements to tangos and popular classics, is rehearsed thoroughly using a variety of rehearsal techniques, as well as practice CDs and videos. Instruction on specific guitar techniques (eg: positioning, free stroke scales, ascending and descending slurs) will be integrated into the rehearsal process.
The Guitar Ensemble, under the new direction of Chad Yacobucci, is the perfect way for students and working professionals to improve their guitar skills and music reading, while making music with others!
2015-16 season information will be available in early August.
