The Chapman Guitar Quartet will be competing in the International Guitar Ensemble Competition sponsored by the Guitar Foundation of America. The inaugural event will be held at California State University, Fullerton on June 22, 2017. This is the first time a Chapman Guitar ensemble has performed at a GFA convention. Ensemble director Jeff Cogan is preparing the group in exhaustive rehearsals leading to the event.
The quartet recently performed for a National Association of Schools of Music concert in March and the biannual guitar recital in May. The Chapman Guitar quartet pictured above is (left to right) John Ligon – sophomore; Steven Gudino – freshman; Dylan Kanner – sophomore; and Jared Jamias – senior.
