Black and Latinx Women Composers for the Guitar
Master Class
May 5, 2024 3:00 pm

Amplifying the work of composers from diverse backgrounds is something all guitarists can get behind, no matter where they are in their musical journey. In ‘Black and Latinx Women Composers for the Guitar: A Conversation with Dr. Ciyadh Wells,’ we’ll delve into learning about these composers and how their works are woven into the guitar repertoire. Dr. Wells, fresh off her 2nd studio album, ‘La Guitarra Negra,’ featuring exclusively works by Black and Latinx women composers, will also share insights into her research and recording process for this and similar projects.

This event is made possible with the support of the Bloomingdale Guitar Training Program and will be hosted by

 Dr. José Maldonado, Director of Guitar Studies

Special Guest:

Dr. Ciyadh Wells
