Calling all guitarists! The New West Guitar Group, one of the world's premier guitar ensembles, offers this unique opportunity to take a guitar master class from the pros.
Graduates of USC's Thornton School of Music, the New West Guitar Group's versatility as players and composers has given them a reputation as pioneers in the realm of guitar ensemble. Featuring guitarists Perry Smith, John Storie and Will Brahm, NWGG performs classic pop covers, jazz standards and exciting originals in an innovative style that highlights rhythm, beauty and virtuosity through combining acoustic and electric guitars.
Smith and Storie founded the group 10 years and today they continue to tour as a trio with Brahm throughout the United States and abroad. Their music is regularly featured on NPR and jazz radio stations, while their repertoire is performed throughout the country by college and high school guitar programs.
