Guitar, of the non-rock sort

For the first time in, like, four years, I missed all of the CSU Guitar Symposium this year. But last weekend's competition is bringing in strong reviews. Director (and fabulous guitarist) Andrew Zohn was proud that, for the first time, a CSU student placed.

The archlute concert was apparently something to behold, too. The instrument was taller than its player, and he would sway it side-t0-side like the mast on a tallship.

Here's the list of winners, just posted on the Schwob School of Music site.
