The musical relationship between guitarists Erdong Li and Andrew Zohn began in 2013 as student and teacher. Li moved from his native China to pursue graduate studies under Zohn’s direction at the Schwob School of Music (Columbus State University). Upon Li’s joining the faculty of the Schwob School in 2018, the two formed this exciting new duo and are performing a diverse program which includes Rossini, Couperin, Gnattali, and Zohn.
Michael Partington is one of the most engaging concert players of his generation. Praised by Classical Guitar Magazine for his “lyricism, intensity and clear technical command,” this award-winning British guitarist has performed to unanimous critical praise.
The vibrant and energetic Ibison Guitar Duo, Janet Grohovac and Chad Ibison, have been performing together since 2010 and are based in Austin, Texas. The Ibison Guitar Duo performs throughout the US and abroad.
“Soulful and virtually flawless,” hails the Portland Oregonian and the Boston Globe writes, “In warm, round tones, the notes of Bach cascaded from the guitar, every note correct and played without hesitation.” Classical guitarist, pedagogue and educator Dr. Isaac Bustos, enjoys an extensive performing career that has taken him to Canada, Central America, Europe, China, and all over the US.
