About The Event

Korean guitarist Bokyung Byun​ is one of the most sought-after guitarists of her generation. The first female winner of the JoAnn Falletta International Guitar Concerto Competition in 2018, Byun also took first prize in Guitar Foundation of America's 2021 International Concert Artist Competition.

Byun has performed as a soloist with the Buffalo Philharmonic, the Utah Symphony, West Los Angeles Symphony, New Juilliard Ensemble, and the Aspen Music Festival Orchestra, among other ensembles. She has performed solo recitals at the Kumho Young Artist Concert Series, Philadelphia Guitar Festival, Salida Aspen Concerts, Toronto Guitar Weekend, Guitar Montréal, Ellnora | The Guitar Festival, and San Diego Guitar Festival. Soundboard magazine called Byun’s 2020 debut recording “a very beautiful disc,” adding, “from the first notes of the Gallarda from Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Escarraman, we are treated to extraordinary musicianship, technical assurance, and beauty of sound.”
