Orange Coast College music instructor Adam Pettit will direct the OCC Guitar Ensemble in a performance on Sunday, Dec. 8, at 3 p.m. in the Robert B. Moore Theatre. Showcasing students enrolled in Classical Guitar studies at OCC, the event will include soloists, small ensembles, and a guitar orchestra.
Students will share the stage with special guest Bokyung Byun, an accomplished South Korean guitarist whose numerous awards include being the first female winner of the JoAnn Faletta International Guitar Competition, and the first prize winner at the Frances Walton Competition, the Montreal International Guitar Competition, and the Philadelphia Guitar Competition. She is also the recipient of the International Artist Fellowship at the University of Southern California. Her playing has been described by Classical Guitar Magazine as “confident and quite extraordinary.”
