It is here, as much as anywhere, where American history started. It's where the first US Congress assembled and produced the Bill of Rights and where President George Washington took his first oath of office. It's here where the world's most important stock exchange and one of the most famous bridges stand. And it is here where an unspeakable tragedy took place and where a rebirth is underway.

A free (for the first time in the Festival’s history) New York Guitar Festival marathon's focus is on classical guitar music in North and South America. The marathon runs in two parts, from 2-5pm (North America) and 7-10pm (South America). William Kanengiser has invited four brilliant guest artists to help celebrate the guitar of North America. David Mozqueda, a young virtuoso from Gaudalaja, Mexico, will present masterworks by Ponce and Olivas, as well as arrangements of popular Mexican folksongs. Colin Davin, prizewinner in the GFA competition and modern-music specialist, will present compelling works by Joan Tower, and with flutist Daniel James, a new work by Alaska-based composer Conrad Wilson. Connie Shue, an emerging artist specializing in women composers, will play works by Canadian composer Dale Kavanaugh, Brazilian Clarice Assad (Badi’s niece) and John Anthony Lennon. The phenomenal Naumberg Award-winner Jorge Caballero will play the first of his two sets in the Marathon, presenting some of the most important American guitar compositions by Elliott Carter and John Major, as well as the stunning Sonata #1 by Cuban master Léo Brouwer. William Kanengiser will close out the afternoon by presenting an eclectic mix of Mexican, Cuban and American works, ranging from folkloric to contemporary to jazz-inspired

In Russian with English subtitles. Presented with a post-screening discussion led by Olga Gershenson, Assistant Professor of Judaic and Near Eastern Studies at University of Massachusetts at Amherst and author of the recent book, The Phantom Holocaust: Soviet Cinema and Jewish Catastrophe.

A free (for the first time in the Festival’s history) New York Guitar Festival marathon's focus is on classical guitar music in North and South America. The marathon runs in two parts, from 2-5pm (North America) and 7-10pm (South America). For the second part of the Marathon, Badi Assad has crafted an evening of propulsive rhythm and sensuous melody from South America. The award-winning Brazil Guitar Duo will open the evening with pieces by Villa-Lobos, Piazzolla, Gismonti and others. Samba master Romero Lubambo will bring his technical fireworks and serious Brazilian groove to a set of popular pieces by Jobim, Garoto and others. Jorge Caballero will return to the stage to present some of the most important South American compositions for guitar, including works by Barrios, Antonio Lauro, and the seminal Sonata by Ginastera. Making their NY debut, the incredible Duo Siquiera/Lima will present fiery duets by Brazilian, Argentinian and Ecuadorian composers. The grand finale of the Marathon will be the inimitable Badi Assad, who brings a feminine sensibility to her stunning world-beat fusion of pop, jazz and Brazilian music.
