The Great Lakes Guitar Society (GLGS) will be host to the 2014 Guitar Festival at Buffalo State College, which will include the Inaugural International Arrangement Competition for Solo Guitar (S.P.I.A.C). Following in the tradition of the classical and romantic eras, the objective of this competition is to inspire new arrangements to be created at the highest possible artistic levels for the classical guitar. In the 21st century, the composer/performer most associated with the gold standard of arrangements is Roland Dyens, who is internationally recognized as advancing the art of arranging to the highest level the guitar has seen to date. 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.
