For 25 years, I have been the organizer of Meesters op de Gitaar, the international classical guitar series at the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Throughout this time, I have often been surprised by the ways guitarists present themselves both to me and the audience. Intrigued about their choices I have transformed my experiences and reflections into a lecture.
The lecture covers a range of topics, like biographies, promotional photos and effective collaboration with a manager. It delves into ways for capturing the attention of programmers and navigating the pitfalls and possibilities within the guitar festival circuit.
I have tailored its content with classical guitarists in mind but I am confident that the lecture holds valuable insights for singers, other instrumentalists and industry representatives as well.
This lecture is particularly beneficial for those who aspire to establish or enhance their careers on the international concert stage.
