On Saturday May, 30 2015, the final round of the 2015 Parkening International Guitar Competition was live streamed by over 13,000 viewers. The archive of that stream is available below.


The Parkening International Guitar Competition will be awarding more than $65,000 in prize money (the most of any classical-guitar competition). It’s always a great showcase for little-known and up-and-coming guitarists. The competition’s namesake, Christopher Parkening, is a distinguished professor of music at Pepperdine (and one of the most famous classical guitarists in the world, of course).
