After the cancellation of the Cleveland debut of Berta Rojas in March, CCGS was eager to find another opportunity to present Ms. Rojas in concert. This exclusive online concert features the music of the Paraguayan composer and guitarist Agustín Barrios Mangoré.
Berta Rojas ranks among today’s foremost classical guitarists. She has been praised as “guitarist extraordinaire” by the Washington Post and as an “ambassador of the classical guitar” by Classical Guitar Magazine. She has been nominated three times for a Latin Grammy Award (in the categories of Best Instrumental Album, Best Classical Album, and Best Tango Album). In addition to continually enriching her own artistic career through frequent international tours and masterclasses, Berta Rojas is firmly committed to furthering and disseminating the classical guitar. A particular focus is on promoting the music of her country, Paraguay, as well as Latin American music in general. She is dedicated to providing ongoing support for the careers of young, upcoming artists.
Rojas has been honored as a Fellow of the Americas by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts for her artistic excellence. In a 2014 publication, the news agency EFE deemed her one of the most influential women in the Hispanic world.
