Guitar Orchestra workshop

 STUDY, PREPARE, PERFORM!

A workshop that highlights the benefit and fun of ensemble playing.
A unique opportunity to create music all together, which no one as individual can possibly play. 
Our goal is preparing pieces for the final concert of the festival.

Guitar study can be a very lonely and sometimes boring journey.

Participating in an ensemble provides many benefits:
