‘One of the guitar world´s foremost players.’ Classical Guitar Magazine

Join us to celebrate ILAMS' silver jubilee on the 27th April at SOAS with a recital by the illustrious classical guitarist and former ILAMS trustee, Morgan Szymanski. We mark this special occasion with a programme of great Latin American classical guitar standards from Mexico, Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina.

A featured artist on the cover of Classical Guitar Magazine, the multi-award-winning virtuoso Mexican guitarist, Morgan Szymanski, is a graduate of the RCM and Conservatorium van Amsterdam. He has performed worldwide and across all the UK’s major venues and festivals, and has appeared as a soloist with many of the UK's leading orchestras. He is an alumnus of Live Music Now!, and in 2016 founded PRISMA, an artistic outreach programme aimed at taking workshops to socially disadvantaged and remote areas in Mexico. Morgan can be heard frequently on BBC Radio 3 and boasts an extensive discography, including several albums on his own label, Sarabande Records. A longstanding ambassador of Mexican repertoire, he revived a long-forgotten song penned by Frida Kahlo for performance in tandem with the 2019 V&A Museum exhibition, Frida Kahlo: Making Herself Up.
