Event Description

Praised by Classical Guitar Magazine as “confident and quite extraordinary”, Korean guitarist Bokyung Byun will bring her extraordinary talent to the UVic Philip T. Young Recital Hall on Friday March 17th at 7:30pm. One of the most sought-after guitarists of her generation, Byun’s concert will close Victoria Guitar Society’s Virtuosa! series which has highlighted some of the top female classical guitarists in the world.
Byun holds the distinction of being the first female winner of the prestigious JoAnn Falletta International Guitar Concerto Competition, where Falletta herself described Byun’s performance as "stunning, showcasing her gorgeous tone, immaculate technique, and sophisticated musicianship.” This win is among many wherein Byun excelled in the competitive circuit, including winning the grand prize at the Guitar Foundation of America International Concert Artist Competition, known as the most prestigious guitar competition in the world.
Committed to expanding the role of a 21st-century musician, Byun’s concert program often features contemporary music alongside traditional repertoire. Her debut recording in 2020 has been praised by Soundboard Magazine as “a very beautiful disc. From the first notes of the ‘Gallarda’ from Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Escarraman, we are treated to extraordinary musicianship, technical assurance, and beauty of sound.”
Don’t miss the chance to see Bokyung Byun perform live at the UVic Philip T. Young Recital Hall on Friday, March 17th at 7:30pm. Regular tickets are $30, $25 for members and $15 for under 18s. They are available on the door with card payment or through the society’s website: https:// www.victoriaguitarsociety.ca
In addition, a masterclass where Byun will instruct some of Victoria’s rising classical guitar stars is open to the public to watch at 10am on the day of the concert at the same location. Tickets are $10 with card payment on the door or free for Victoria Guitar Society members.
