The International Guitar Festival kicks off this week!
Rick and I went for our first little taste at the MedioDía today. What fun! The Orquestra de Guitarras de la UCR played arrangements for guitars - there were about 20 players, ranging from soprano to electric bass (is there such a thing as a soprano guitar? dunno, but it went pretty high, like a mandolin). The composers included Manuel de Falla, Andrew York, Astor Piazolla (!!!), Ernesto Alfaro, Pedro Elías Campos, and Rubén Fuentes.
We're very much looking forward to more guitar this week :-)
