We are super excited to announce that the Chancellor of the UT System, Dr. Francisco Cigarroa, will be making introductory remarks before the opening night concert of our festival week!

If you don't already know, the UT System encompasses 15 campuses in Texas (including UT Austin - "Hook 'em Horns!", and Texas A&M) and has a budget (2010) of nearly 12 Billion Dollars.  Dr. Cigarroa oversees the system, he is an active organ transplant surgeon and... he's also a fine classical guitar player (plays a Ruck)!

It seems like the perfect match, then, for the Chancellor of our University System in Texas to welcome our international guests from more than 20 countries, the nearly 200 young people who will be arriving for our youth festival that day, and our Austin community, for what will be an unforgettable concert with one of the world's most beloved guitarists: Pepe Romero.
