Class Axe 2016

Here’s some of the pieces from the Class Axe Guitar workshop. The Guitar Society of Toronto with the Canadian Music Centre have created new compositions for solo classical guitar.  This year’s workshop included collaborations with guitarists and organizations in Vancouver and Montreal. The workshop was open to any Canadian composer. The works are being premiered by Rob MacDonald (Toronto), Steve Cowan (Montreal), and Adrian Verdejo (Vancouver) and some additional others in salon-style concerts in late 2016. Class Axe is produced with help from the Canadian Music Centre and the Toronto Guitar Society.

Here’s some videos from last year’s Class Axe.
