New Guitar Concert Series

New Guitar Concert Series

Contemporary music for classical and jazz guitar

The New Guitar is a concert series devoted to the performance of
contemporary concert music written for guitar, including both ensemble and
solo guitar music. The repertoire of the concerts reflects most of the
trends in contemporary composition and features an eclectic range of
repertoire. The New Guitar was founded by Michael Bracken and James Brown
in 1992 and has since presented annual concerts of contemporary repertoire
by Canadian and international composers. Past concerts have included
several premiere performances of new pieces by Canadian composers. Besides
programming contemporary classics and premiering new music, part of the New
Guitar mandate has been to promote music that has been unduly neglected. In
addition to performances of concert music on classical guitar the New
Guitar has also featured experimental and improvised music on electric and
jazz guitar.
