The Classical Guitar Festival Sydney is proud to present French classical guitarist Thibaut Garcia in concert.
The classical guitar artistry of this young virtuoso is a compelling blend of French technique with the warm Spanish soul, as he expresses his heritage through his breathtaking performances.
At twenty-two, Garcia has already won several international competition prizes including first prize at the Guitar Foundation of America in Oklahoma City in 2015, the “Jose Thomas” international competition in Spain in 2014, the IV Sevilla International Guitar Competition in Spain in 2013, the “Terra Siculorum” in Romania in 2013, the “Ana Amalia” in Weimar, Germany in 2011, and the “Valle de Egues” in Spain in 2008.
His international career has taken him to concert stages in France, Spain, England, Germany, Romania, Hungary, Canada, United States, Brazil, Greece, Argentina, Mexico, Russia, and China.
In his native France, Garcia was recently featured on La Boîte à Musique (The Music Box) where he was invited to perform on national television by Jean-François Zygel. In December 2015, he also performed on France Musique for Gaëlle Le Gallic’s program. Garcia was also recently awarded the distinction of “filleul” (Godson) by the Académie Charles-Cros, a cultural organization that acts as an intermediary between government policy makers and professional musicians in France.
A concert not to be missed, Thibaut Garcia performs with a virtuosity that defies cliche and blends the charm of the classical guitar with a modern urban sensibility.
