The 25th Annual Great Guitar Gathering featuring The Los Angeles Guitar Gathering
Douglas Anderson School of the Arts has presented Jacksonville with the Great Guitar Gathering, a fund-raising concert to benefit the Guitar Department of the school. The event ot only showcases the fabulous Douglas Anderson Guitar Orchestra but has presented many of the most respected artists of the guitar in classical, finger-style, and jazz guitar. Many of the past guests are Grammy winners and nominees, National Finger-Style Champions and International competition winners.
This year’s guest is The Los Angeles Guitar Quartet (LAGQ). This Grammy Award-winning group is one of the most multi-faceted groups in any genre. LAGQ is comprised of four uniquely accomplished musicians bringing a new energy to the concert stage with programs ranging from Bluegrass to Bach. They consistently play to sold-out houses worldwide. Their inventive, critically acclaimed transcriptions of concert masterworks provide a fresh look at the music of the past, while their interpretations of works from the contemporary and world-music realms continually break new ground.
