ConcertsCompetitionWorkshops since 2002

The Montréal International Classical Guitar Festival and Competition is a one of a kind concert, known only to Canada. Classical guitar enthusiasts from around the world meet annually at Concordia University. Concert go-ers enjoy the musical talents of internationally renowned classical guitarists, master classes, and vendor galleries.

The festival holds a number of events and activities from the budding classical guitarist to the specialist. Classical guitarists under the age of 18 can put their talents to the test at the youth competition, which is open to the public. The more advanced, and of age guitarists, can compete in the International Competition.
