Guitarists strum up success
Festival features Cuban composer, additional talents
The guitar world enjoyed a love fest Friday night when Cuba's Leo Brouwer, the most revered living composer for the instrument, conducted his own "Toronto" Concerto and other works for the Southwest Guitar Festival. Travis Park United Methodist Church was nearly filled with about 1,000 listeners, including locals and registrants for the Guitar Foundation of America's international convention, which ran concurrently with the festival.
