Event Description

Victoria Guitar Society’s Virtuosa! concert series continues on Jan. 14 with Laura Young, an award-winning classical guitarist, who will put on a concert featuring some of the finest works of classical guitar.

Victoria Guitar Society Director, Ben Blackledge, said: “We are very fortunate to have such an exceptional guitarist playing in Victoria. Laura brings incredible virtuosity and interpretation to bear on a programme including Bach, Reger and Albéniz amongst many others. It will be a night to remember!”

Young, originally from Toronto but now based in Barcelona, has won prestigious prizes at international competitions such as the ‘Andrés Segovia Competition’ in Palma de Mallorca and the ‘Jacinto e Inocencio Guererro’ in Madrid. Laura is currently professor at the Escuela Superior de Musica de Catalunya (ESMUC) in Barcelona.

The concert will take place at Phillip T. Young Recital Hall at the University of Victoria and will begin at 7.30p.m. on Jan. 14, 2023. Regular tickets are $30, reduced to $25 for Victoria Guitar Society members and $15 for under 18s. They are available on the door with card payment or through the society’s website: https://www.victoriaguitarsociety.ca

The Virtuosa! concert series hosted by Victoria Guitar Society aims to highlight some of the top female classical guitarists in the world and will continue with Bokyung Byun on Mar. 17, 2023.

In addition, a masterclass where Young will instruct some of Victoria’s rising classical guitar stars is open to the public to view at 9am on Jan. 13 at the same location. Tickets are $10 with card payment on the door or free for Victoria Guitar Society members.
