Dear partners and friends,
Unfortunately, these events planned for this year have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic:
- Badalona Guitar Festival 2020
- V International Competition for Young Interpreters
- Young Talents' Concert
- Summer Guitar Concert.
We do not know if it will be possible to hold the traditional Autumn Concert with a great guitar artist. We hope so. We have everything planned and, if possible, we will announce it when it´s confirmed.
Meanwhile, we maintain content publishing activities on this website and on social media...

Antonio de Torres Jurado was the luthier who defined the guidelines for the classical guitar. Today, 203 years after his birth, his guitars are still a reference.
On the occasion of his bicentennial, three years ago, our Association organized an International festival in his honour.
We remember with special affection the exhibition in which we managed to gather and show eight faithful replicas of the Antonio de Torres guitars: la "Cumbre", la "Leona", the Tárrega gutars, the Llobet guitar, the Pujol guitar and the last guitar of Torres, built by prestigious luthiers from all over the world: Abel García López, Verónica Ayala, Joan Pellissa, Carlos Juan Busquiel , John Ray, Felipe Conde i Antonio Manjón.

This blog has been created on June 5, the same day that Federico García Lorca was born, so we dedicated this first article to him. It is well known that the great playwright and poet was also a musician, a good guitarist and a great lover of our favorite instrument.
But we also dedicate it to him for a fact that very few people know: García Lorca spent his last Christmas in Badalona.
