CAG’s Artist of the Month…get to know more about
CAG’s Alumni Roster

One of CAG’s initiatives this season has been to represent a select group of former Competition Winners. The Brasil Guitar Duo, vocal ensemble Calmus, and mezzo-soprano Naomi Louisa O’Connell all launched their careers with CAG and we are proud to work with them as more established and experienced performers.

Calmus will be performing at the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls on February 2 and at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa on February 4. The Brasil Guitar Duo will give three one-hour performances at the Da Camera Society in Los Angeles on February 18, as well as taking part in the 92nd Street Y Guitar Marathon in New York City on February 25, and a performance on the Florence, SC Chamber Music Series on February 26.
