Live Virtual Concert 

 

On February 27, the Edmonton Classical Guitar Society is delighted to host internationally acclaimed guitarist ILIANA MATOS for a free, online concert. Hailed as “one of the great players of our time,” Iliana Matos has firmly established herself as a masterful performer, critically-acclaimed recording artist, dutiful mentor, and inspiration to female guitarists around the world. Over the last three decades, Matos has shared her passion and virtuosity with audiences around the world, including extensive touring in Latin America, North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Her decorated competition career includes eleven prizes, including first place in the Andrés Segovia in Palma de Mallorca, Luys Milán, and Manuel Ponce International Guitar Competitions. She is the first woman to win the prestigious S.A.R. La Infanta Doña Cristina International Guitar Competition, and the only person to win the special prize for Best Interpretation of Spanish Music in two consecutive years, 1995 and 1996.


Throughout her career, Matos has maintained a commitment to fostering a new generation of young guitarists. For over 20 years, she nurtured rising Spanish guitarists while teaching at the Conservatory of the Balearics, the Conservatory of Salamanca and the Royal Music Conservatory of Madrid. Today, she serves as the Head of Guitar Studies at the University of Lethbridge, while continuing to teach master classes around the world. We are deeply honoured to host a legend of Mrs. Matos’ stature, and eagerly await the Spanish-Cuban virtuoso’s undoubtedly masterful performance.
