We are very excited to announce the second annual GSI Summer Arts Scholarship. The scholarship will provide $2000 towards tuition and housing for one very deserving student to spend three weeks this Summer (July 23rd to August 12th) in Granada, Spain, as a student at the CSU Summer Arts La Guitarra Española course, which includes master classes with Pepe Romero, the Romero Quartet and Mabel Millán, and daily instruction from Vicente Coves, Scott Morris and myself Kai Narezo. The course takes place during the Granada Guitar Festival, which will feature concerts all month. The scholarship will go to a talented guitar student who would greatly benefit from study in Spain. The winner will be chosen by the GSI staff based not only on talent, but on the student’s commitment to the guitar and to the guitar community.
DEADLINE for application for Summer Arts and the scholarship is April 15, 2019. This is also the 60th anniversary tour of Los Romeros, who will be performing Rodrigo’s Concerto de Andaluz. Pepe Romero will perform the Concerto de Aranjuez in the same concert, which will be presented with a full orchestra at the Manuel de Falla Auditorium. This will be a historic concert!
CSU Summer Arts is open to all – it is not limited to CSU Students or to California or US residents. All are welcome to apply and attend.
