Dear guitarists, enthusiasts and friends:

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the fifth biannual Texas A&M International Guitar Symposium and Competition. The 2018 edition of the Symposium will take place September 28 – 30 at the beautiful Texas A&M Campus. We are thrilled to bring a variety of programming and performances by distinguished concert artists from around the world! This year we have the distinct pleasure to present Adam Holzman, Lily Afshar, Gohar Vardanyan, Olga Amelkina-Vera, Steve Aron, David Leisner and Jeff McFadden. Complementing the public recitals, our world-class faculty will also present multi-class residencies, masterclasses and lectures. Additionally, the Symposium hosts the Nancy L. Cooke Memorial Professional Competition with youth and professional categories.

We hope that you will join us for what promises to be an uplifting, exciting and enriching event!

Dr. Isaac Bustos, Artistic Director.
