Some of the very best guitarists in the Bolton Guitar Studies program from the Fred Fox School of Music will compete in the 19th Beeston Memorial Guitar Competition Finals at Holsclaw Hall on Nov. 14.

Thomas Beeston believed that music is our common denominator and that it has the power to heal, to inspire and to transform. Highly regarded as a guitarist and luthier, Tom was a leading figure in the evolution of Tucson as an international center for the classical guitar. He was a friend and mentor to Norman Douglas Sholin, founder of the UA Guitar Program, as well as Sholin’s first classical guitar teacher. Thomas served as an advisor to the UA guitar program until his death in 1999.

The Beeston Guitar Competition has garnered the attention of music lovers from all age groups and backgrounds. Its increasing popularity means it draws large audiences from the community.

The final round of the Thomas H. Beeston Memorial Guitar Competition features four finalists, chosen from the semi-final round held the previous day. Each finalist performs a 20-minute program in this public recital venue. Immediately after the concert nearly $15,000 in prizes, including a finely crafted guitar by Stephan Connor, will be awarded to the winners.
