Here’s 14-year-old Sedona Farber, a student of Vasil Chekardzhikov and Jack Sanders who currently attends the Orange County High School For the Arts, playing Rodrigo’s ‘Tiento Antiguo’ on a great 1999 Enrico Bottelli spruce-top.

Sedona is a serious up-and-comer on the guitar scene, and she has already won or placed in numerous competitions including first place in the 2015 GFA International Youth Competition, Indiana University International Guitar Competition, Texas International Guitar Competition, Pacific Guitar Competition, American String Teachers Association, MACOC, and Sierra Nevada Guitar Competition. She recently performed at the Segerstrom Performing Arts Center and the Webb Theater with Walter Molina. With her sister Haley, in the Farber Duo, Sedona was featured at the 2014 Guitar Foundation of America Youth Showcase concert and the 2013 GFA regional symposium in Los Angeles.

    Terrific piece, well-played on a great-sounding guitar.

    I’m a seasoned guitar player but I have listened to this performance five times and will no doubt listen again. In Sedona’s hands, that guitar is so sold!

    Wow. Nice. A lovely young lady playing like a pro and like the great musician she is growing to be. Quite awesome.

  4. Forrest Anderson says:

    Brava, Ms. Farber! Kudos to your teacher, as well!

    I will be very surprised is this fabulous sounding guitar lasts too much longer.

    Thank you!

    This is one of the best performances I have heard from among all your posted videos. Generally, I find most young performers interesting but somewhat boring from a musical viewpoint. Not so this young lady. I predict a dazzling future for her.

    14???! She is fabulous, great patience and timing, very clean, and she totally “gets” the piece. 2 great Italian luthiers working now, Tacchi and Botelli. But one now, they will be in the Fleta $$ range before long.
