LAGQ will be playing a concert February 9th to benefit a wonderful project at the University of Texas, San Antonio. The UTSA String project provides string and guitar education majors the opportunity to develop the skills needed to become successful and powerful educators. It offers beginning through advanced level music instruction to community students (grades 3 through 8) on stringed instruments (violin, viola, cello, bass, guitar).
In March 2012, the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet played a series of concerts with guitar orchestras, featuring a new work by Kyoto-based composer/guitarist Shingo Fujii. The piece, entitled “Shiki: Seasons of Japan”, was dedicated to the victims of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
Check out this short documentary of the project, featuring performance and rehearsal footage as well as interviews.
