The Great Lakes Guitar Society Presents

The 1st Seconda Prattica International Arrangement Competition for Solo Guitar

We are proud to announce that Roland Dyens will be the head judge for the competition. Following in the footsteps of the past greats such as Francisco Tarrega, Miguel Llobet, and Emilio Pujol, Roland Dyens has had a profound impact on the guitar repertoire and has personally birthed the idea of the arrangement competition to promote and advance this vital musical genre. The objective of this competition is to inspire new arrangements to be created at the highest possible artistic level for the classical guitar in the 21st Century.
