A. Segovia Guitar Competition

LHR Andres Segovia 2019If you’re well slick on a fretboard then you have until the 14th of January to get your name down for the next Segovia, guitar competition.

The XXXIV Certamen Internacional de Guitarra Clásica, Andrés Segovia 2019, will be held, as has become the norm, in the Centro Cívico de La Herradura, from the 22nd to the 26th of January, 2019.

This edition will pay homage to the Cuban composer, Leo Brouwer, motivated by his 80th birthday. The point behind the Andrés Segovia (1893-1987) Classical Guitar Competition is to encourage young musicians to achieve excellence.

So far, almost a score of hopefuls have put their names down but with two weeks to go there is still plenty of opportunity to come forward.

Mind you, if you can only manage the Smoke-on-the-Water chords after a couple of vino-colapsos, perhaps this is not the competition for you – air-guitar gymnasts, therefore, abstain.

You can enter the competition via this online link remembering that you have to be under 34 and not have won any prizes in previous competitions.

Also remember that just because your Stacy and her mate, Sharon, reckon you’re a rock god and well hard, do try to stay away from the stage area of the Centro Cívico in mid January.
