Guitar Ensemble

Guido Sánchez-Portuguez, instructor

The University of Illinois’ Guitar Ensemble is a chamber group that provides guitar students the opportunity to perform as a small guitar orchestra. Under the direction of Dr. Guido Sánchez-Portuguez, the ensemble focuses on original pieces, arrangements of, and new compositions commissioned exclusively for the group. Open to guitar majors, music majors, minors and non-music majors, the Guitar Ensemble is a great vehicle for guitarists to explore chamber and orchestral repertoire unavailable to the solo guitar, as well as cool and exciting popular music arrangements taken from various and diverse musical traditions.
