The early registration deadline for this year’s New York Guitar Seminar at Mannes ends fairly soon—March 31—and with it the $100 discount for full participants. The 16th NYGS will takes place at the Mannes School of Music in Manhattan July 6-11, and will, as always, offer a blend of master classes, hands-on workshops, faculty concerts, participants’ concerts, and performance classes. Registered full participants also have the option of signing up for housing at the nearby New School University dorms.

This year’s list of internationally respected faculty and performers is typically eclectic and impressive, including Sergio Assad, Clarice Assad, the duo of Alfonso Montes and Irina Kircher (pictured above), the Newman & Oltman Guitar Duo, Duo Cintemani (Nicholas Ciraldo with flutist Rachel Taratoot Ciraldo),Brazilian composer/guitarist Arthur Kampela, Mariano Aguirre, Mario da Silva with dancer Rocio Infante, Jennifer Trowbridge, and Richard Boukas.
