The premiere of Virtual Guitar Orchestra (VGO) is LIVE! VGO, a global guitar community initiative, was born originally out of an idea to create a new audience development tool for our instrument, and ended up being a necessity to keep the guitar community alive and active during the times of the Covid 19 Pandemic. This inaugural video represents a collaborative effort of 144 people from more than 50 countries, each and every one of them trying their very best to craft a beautiful stone for this mosaic. VGO, founded by Mak Grgic, performs Kaleidokithara, a brilliant composition composed by Sergio Assad for the occasion! It took a massive editing undertaking to make this work, and this was done by the master editor Uros Baric.
In the attempt to create a way to connect all classical guitarists in these tough and uncertain times – everyone from students to amateur guitarists to world class soloists – in doing what we all love most, many heroes of the guitar came together to help the cause. A big shout out to all of the following stars of the guitar:
Juan Manuel Cañizares
VGO is also giving back to the community. It is important to recognize those who fight for better tomorrow, so we are raising funds for Doctors Without Borders. Please consider joining this beneficial cause, by donating via the YouTube video of Kaleidokithara!
