“I am especially excited about the quality of this year’s artist roster, which is superior to most events of this type,” said Frank. “The festival has become a landmark among summer guitar festivals and is a can’t-miss event for guitar lovers and concertgoers alike.”

Featured artists include Vieaux and Duo Spiritoso (Jeffrey McFadden and Andrew Zohn, who first performed in Greenville as part of the 2005 ECU Summer Guitar Festival), festival director Frank, the Akerman Teixeira Duo, Stephen Aron and 2011 festival competition winner Mark Edwards.

The finals of this year’s solo competition are open to the public. The workshop and camp portions of the festival are open to students ages 12 and up who wish to acquire or improve skills on the classical guitar.

  1. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  2. I think everything wrote made a bunch of sense. But, consider this,
    suppose you composed a catchier post title?

    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added a post
    title that makes people want more? I mean ECU Guitar Festival,
    Workshop begins July 14 | ECU Now is kinda boring.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how
    they create article titles to grab viewers to
    click. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

  3. Hey there! I’ve been reading your web site for a
    while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from New Caney Texas!
