Segovia Connection

FLORIDA GUITAR FESTIVAL 18-1

Dem Article on Segovia The legendary father of classical guitar Andres Segovia had many connections to FSU. In 1969 he received an honorary Doctorate from FSU’s then Department of Music. While he was here he took the picture below on the left, which has been used in the book The Segovia Technique and become very famous in the classical guitar world.

 

With help from FSU alumni and administrators we have been able to find the same chair, seen in the picture on the right, and bring it to this year’s Guitar Showcase for anyone and everyone to sit in and take pictures with!
