The EKU Guitar Ensemble

The EKU Guitar Ensemble features undergraduate and graduate guitar majors and minors performing literature that spans from the Renaissance to the modern era. The members are pursuing degrees in either music performance, education, composition, or marketing. Their guitar education focuses on applied lessons, theory, history, literature, and pedagogy. The EKU Guitar Ensemble performs frequently to enthusiastic audiences at regional universities, secondary and elementary schools, civic groups, churches, and similar venues. The group can also divide into smaller assortments of quartets, trios, and duos, depending upon the demands of the engagement. Please contact Dennis Davis, the director of guitar studies at EKU, to schedule a performance or to learn more about the guitar program at EKU.

Non-majors can join by scheduling an audition. The ensemble meets as a class for four hours each week and students rehearse outside of class for five more hours (or as long as necessary). The EKU guitar ensemble is a major ensemble and students earn one hour of academic credit per semester.
