Jason Vieaux, guitar
This week, a visit from one of today's most exciting new artists-guitarist Jason Vieaux. A 1992 winner of the Guitar Foundation of America's international competition, and a top prize winner in the 1996 Naumburg competition, Vieaux was honored as an artistic ambassador for the US to Southeast Asia in 1995. He was also an NPR "Young Artist-in-Residence" for 2002. He currently holds the position of chair of the guitar department at the Cleveland Institute, and continues to perform with orchestras world-wide to critical acclaim.
