The recent Melbourne International Guitar Festival Competition was a fantastic display of talent from all competition entrants. The standard was very high and it was a pleasure to see, once again, that there is a wealth of young talent in the Australian classical guitar community. The MGF was proud to present the festival and competition and we look forward to repeating this success next year.

 

This year GuitarsOnline sponsored the lower categories of the competition and recorded many of the performances. The videos of these performances are available on YouTube, with links provided below.

 

This year our competition adjudicator was Julia Bakowski. Julia did a wonderful job listening throughout the day to each performer and providing detailed feedback on their playing. Her work was much appreciated and provided valuable feedback to each entrant.

 

We hope to see all our competition entrants next year and look forward to continuing our work in developing Australia’s local guitar community!
