Welcome to the FESTIVAL

Welcome to the 3rd Mid-Maryland Guitar Festival and Competition. We are excited to feature a wonderful array of critically acclaimed local and international performers in three days of guitar activities that will provoke the senses, test your imagination, awaken the mind, while exploring the genres of classical, jazz, and flamenco music. We are excited to once again welcome young guitarists who are competing in the Young Artists Competition, and the ensembles who will be participating in our ensembles day. This year, through a generous grant by the Arts Institute at Montgomery College, all events at the festival, including registration for the competition, are FREE. 

We are also excited about co-presenting with an extremely important guitar organization, the John E. Marlow Series. This leading organization promotes the guitar through a series of concerts and outreach performances throughout the DMV. Please visit their website to find out more about the magnificent array of concerts that they have planned for their 2018/2019 concert series. 

We look forward to seeing you in November.
