Thessaloniki Guitar Festival

Thanks in no small measure to the artistic direction and organizing efforts of Fotis Koutsothodoros, the third edition of the Thessaloniki Guitar Festival is coming up just this week, March 16–20.

The festival will host the following list of distinguished guests: Caja Secreta, Ioanna Kazoglou, Thanos Mitsalas, Vassilis Sigletos, Roland Dyens, Theodoros Kitsos, Stelios Moustos, Giorgos Siskos, Marcin Dylla, Dimitris Kontogiannis, Giannis Paleodimopoulos, Theofilos Sotiriadis, Oscar Ghiglia, Charalampos Koumridis, Elena Papandreou, Nikos Spanos, Kostas Grigoreas, Kostas Makrigiannakis, Cecilio Perrera, Julious Papadopoulos, and Vesko Belomazov.

The festival also hosts six—yes six!—competitions: a guitar competition below 13 and 17 years old; a guitar competition without age limit; a composition competition; an arrangement/transcription competition; and a chamber music competition.

Check out all the details here, but do so quickly—it’s just around the corner!

    Dear friends, I would like to know what possibilities there are to introduce in the Festival in 2017, with my repertoire of “Music Argentina”, here I send my virtual disk and my website. This year I will participate for the first time in the Classical Guitar Festival in Calcutta. (India)
