Orchestra

All registrants are encouraged to participate, from amateurs to professionals. This is a great opportunity to have fun, meet fellow guitarists and enjoy the typical camaraderie that is such an enduring element of the Northwest Festival. John Mery of the Oregon Guitar Quartet will lead rehearsals this year, and he’s chosen a beautiful program of music to perform:

Antonio Vivaldi: Sonata in E major, Op 4, No 1, RV 66
Astor Piazzolla: Ave Maria
Roland Dyens: Austin Tango

Here are some recordings to introduce you to the music:
