Welcome to the 4th European Guitar Award


14th to 17th April 2016
4th European Guitar Award
As a part of the String Spring Festival

From April 14th to 17th 2016 the 4th European Guitar Award takes place at the Hochschule für Musik in Dresden and traditionally continues the competition after 2006, 2009 and 2012. The aim of this selection is to find and support exceptionally creative characters in the field of guitar. It differs from other guitar competitions by being orientated towards a versatile skilled musician rather than only an interpreter. The competition is open to any guitarist from all European countries. The jury does also consist of musicians from different European countries and cultural environments. Each of them is a recognized protagonist and very creative performer with his own musical language. It is part of the tradition of the European Guitar Award that they also give workshops and concerts themselves. Extraordinary concert experiences are guaranteed!
