The Wilmington Classical Guitar Society is pleased to bring the Guitar Foundation of America International Concert Artist Competition Winner Tour to Delaware for the first time ever! The prestigious GFA Competition is known throughout the world for drawing the most talented competitors and winning the competition is a coveted milestone in the careers of many young artists. Don’t miss your chance to see this world-class artist!

Russian guitarist Anton Baranov is a prizewinner of more then fifteen prestigious international guitar competitions, including the Koblenz Guitar Competition, Andrés Segovia Competition, Agustín Barrios Competition, Robert Vidal Competition, and Pittaluga Guitar Competition. At the height of his young career, he won both the Guitar Foundation of America International Concert Artist Competition and the Francisco Tárrega Competition in 2013.

Known for his daring interpretation and innovative programming, guitarist and composer Roland Dyens calls him, “a real musician, one of those rare guitarists who are able to have their attendees almost forget the instrument they play, managing to have them focus on the expressivity of the music and only this.”

As part of his prize from winning the GFA competition, Mr. Baranov will embark on a 50-city concert tour throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada, and Brazil, and has just recorded his first album on the Naxos label. Mr. Baranov has been a D’Addario artist since 2013. He currently teaches at his alma mater, the St. Petersburg Conservatory.
A reception featuring MyHouse Cookies will follow the concert.

Opening Artist: Jiyeon Kim, 22, from Seoul, entered the Curtis Institute of Music in 2011 and studies with renowned guitarists David Starobin and Jason Vieaux. Ms. Kim is the John J. Medveckis Annual Fellow at Curtis.
