ACG Ensemble Festival

ACG Fest 2018


Austin Classical Guitar’s Annual Ensemble Festival
Friday & Saturday, April 27 & 28, 2018
Southwestern University (Workshops and rehearsals)
AISD Performing Arts Center (Saturday evening concert)

ACG Fest is two days filled with performing, listening, and laughter to celebrate the joys of making music together. In addition to individual ensemble showcases, we’ll collaborate as a group on two pieces — including the winning entry of our 2018 Composition Competition — and perform them on Saturday night to open the final concert of ACG’s 2017/18 International Series featuring the fabulous duo of Dimitri Illarionov (guitar) & Boris Andrianov (cello).

The main ACG Fest activities will take place on Saturday the 28th, during the day at Southwestern University, and that evening at the AISD Performing Arts Center for the concert. Participants are encouraged to arrive early for a Friday evening masterclass with Illarionov & Andrianov, followed by an Open Mic and Social Hour at the New World Deli.


For questions please contact Joe Williams.
