Guitar Institute 2022
A Triumphant Return
The post pandemic Celedonio Romero Institute brings successful alumni and fresh new talent back to Oklahoma City University for what might be the most important Spanish Guitar Institute in the United States.
The institute attracts competition winners, rising stars, old friends, aficionados, and enthusiasts to come and work together in a non-competitive but intensive and demanding environment.
"I still have yet to find another festival that has formed a family of attendees in the way that this one has and suspect that there is a chance that I may never find another quite like this one."
