Dear PCGS community,
We regret to inform you that as a result of COVID-19 safeguard measures taken in the past few days by some of our venues (Mandel Theater – Drexel University) and out of an abundance of caution to safeguard our PCGS community across all ages, ALL PCGS 2020 FESTIVAL EVENTS ARE CANCELLED. This includes both the Ana Vidovic concert on March 28 and the full day Festival day on Sunday March 29.
We are working with venues to reschedule Ana’s concert and will get back to you very soon with a new date and venue (likely in the Fall 2020) and how we will proceed with pre-purchased tickets for this concert.
All the pre-purchased tickets for the Festival Day on Sunday will be reimbursed.
Should you have any questions or comments, please feel free to send emails to:
Kevin J. Cope - president "at" phillyguitar.com
Fabrizio Franco - Treasurer "at" phillyguitar.com
These are exceptional times and we all ask for your patience, to be safe, and to look after one another.
PCGS Board of Directors.
MASTERCLASS: A class given by an expert, especially a musician, for exceptional students, usually presented in public.
As part of our 2020 Philadelphia Classical Guitar Festival the renowned guitarist Ana Vidovic will follow up her festival opening concert with a masterclass at our full day festival. Skilled students will perform briefly for Ms. Vidovic in the beautiful Presser Hall at the Settlement Music School and they will then be instructed on ways to improve various musical attributes that could range from tone production, performance preparation, efficient practice, technique, or any other aspect of their playing that he feels he can help the student improve.
Masterclasses are not only a great opportunity for performers to work with renowned performers but also a chance for other guitarists, ranging from professional performers to amateur enthusiasts to gain a unique look at how the mind of a master works and to apply the lessons presented on stage to their own playing and practice.
