Since 1999, the New York Guitar Festival has been examining virtually every aspect of the guitar's musical personality. In addition to producing eclectic, multi-genre concerts and radio broadcasts, commissioning new works, and supporting innovative collaborations among outstanding artists, its Guitar Harvest series of recordings supports innovative outreach programs in our public schools.
