The New England Guitar Ensembles Festival (NEGEF), our annual weekend celebration of the guitar as an ensemble instrument, returns in 2020 with enthralling guitar virtuoso Irina Kulikova and a newly commissioned guitar orchestra piece from renowned composer Nikita Koshkin.

A multiple first-prize winner in international competitions, Irina has been performing in front of captivated audiences since her early teens. At NEGEF, she will give a masterclass on Saturday the 22nd, followed by a featured recital on Sunday the 23rd, at 4 pm in Pickman Hall.

Storm Warning, the new work from Nikita Koshkin, will be premiered at Sunday’s concert by the NEGEF orchestra. John Williams, among others, has championed his inventive and immersive pieces, which include Usher Waltz and The Prince’s Toys.

It is truly an honor to feature two such incomparable artists this February.
