The 2013 theme for the 13th Annual New York Guitar Seminar at Mannes is “Be A Player: Exploring Entrepreneurship & Creating Your Own Performing Opportunities.”

-Offering five faculty concerts, 100 master class lessons, and daily ensemble coachings by a faculty consisting of a dozen of the world’s top guitarists, the seminar will also provide multiple solo and ensemble performance opportunities for all participants. In addition, new, innovative, hands-on workshops and discussions will take place that will focus on elements of career development, encouraging guitarists to learn more about how to organize and oversee their own events, concerts, recordings, videos, press materials and publicity, web sites, publishing, teaching opportunities, community outreach presentations, among other topics.

Thousands of classical guitar lovers of all ages—with participants ranging in age from 8 to 82—have attended past New York Guitar Seminars at Mannes, coming from six continents, 50 countries and nearly 40 states of the United States.

Featured players at this concert are Yen Lee, Pierre Ferreyra-Mansilla, and Celil Refik Kaya.
