Saturday, March 15, 2014 – Gohar Vardanyan – Armenia
Classical guitarist Gohar Vardanyan has performed throughout the US including at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC and at the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. She performed on National Public Radio’s program, From the Top, and on Radio Nacional in Argentina. Ms Vardanyan performed with the Julliard Opera Center and as a soloist with the Great Lakes Chamber Orchestra and with the Panama National Symphony Orchestra. She has been a guest artist at the Encuentro Internacional de Guitarra in Panama and the Hamilton International Guitar Festival in Canada. Guitar International Magazine described her as “the complete package, … with a musicality and emotional quality that one would expect from someone much older than this young wunderkind. Not only is she able to draw you into her performances with engaging musical interpretations, but she has the technical facility that is required of any concert level guitarist.” Her playing is described as “passionate, evocative, and virtuosic.”
GuitarSarasota is a non-profit organization promoting the education, appreciation and cultural significance of the classical guitar as a solo and chamber music instrument.
GuitarSarasota membership is open to all who are interested in the guitar.
