SEE YOU IN 2018
I regret to tell you that Kaslo GuitarFest will not take place in the summer of 2017. Our current standing as a non-profit society has not allowed us to raise enough funds to cover our expenses this year.
In the coming year, the GuitarFest Board will restructure as a CRA-registered charity, which will allow us to apply for grants from foundations, and to issue tax receipts to private and corporate donors.
To all who have supported us and attended Kaslo GuitarFest over the past four years, THANK YOU! Your interest and participation shows that there is an appetite for a festival such as ours. We will be back! In the meantime, keep playing, and spread the word about
Kaslo GuitarFest. We’ll see you at the Fifth Kaslo GuitarFest in 2018.

Kaslo Guitar Fest is a week-long educational opportunity for classical guitar students at all skill levels. Masterclasses, private lessons, guitar orchestra, small ensembles, guitar technique, fingerboard geography, and sight reading workshops will be offered to the festival participants, as well as concerts that are also open to the public. 2016 poster
Students will gain confidence, new techniques, and musical proficiency by way of concentrated instruction and practice during the week. Workshops by all members of the faculty provide a variety of learning opportunities tailored to specific levels. Public concerts by members of the faculty and a wrap-up concert by GuitarFest participants will do much to attract interest in classical guitar performance and enhance opportunities for the participants.
