Guimarães International Guitar Festival outreach activities
The Guimaraes International Guitar Festival in Guimaraes, Portugal, hosted 5 EuroStrings Artists: Giulia Ballaré, Julia Trintschuk, Katarzyna Smolarek, Yuki Saito and Simone Rinaldo. As a part of their outreach program, which helps spark interest for classical guitar in the community, they visited a local school in a program called ‘Guitar for All’, where children were given mini-masterclasses. Mini-masterclasses are quick tutoring sessions were each of the children gets to pluck their first notes on the classical guitar. They were also invited to give a concert at the Guimaraes Conservatory, one of the central buildings for music education in the city.
