In December last year we brought news of the Melbourne Guitar Makers Festival to be held later this year on 16 and 17 May. Our endless web trawling has revealed yet another event featuring the guitar. The inaugural Melbourne Guitar Festival is planed for the 23 to 25 January 2009.
This event aims to bring together guitar players, teachers, luthiers and anyone else with an interest or an involvement in the guitar. The festival plans a number of presentations, including five masterclasses, catering for all levels of student players, seven concerts, featuring soloists and ensembles, and workshops with luthiers and composers.
Here is an opportunity for guitar enthusiasts, artists and luthiers to meet, discover and learn. The Melba Memorial Conservatorium of Music is the venue – 45 York Street Richond, Melbourne.
