Like music? So do we! The second annual CSUB Guitar Day is free and open to the public on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the Doré Theatre. The day begins with master classes and rehearsals for junior high and high school students who have already auditioned for eligibility. Then, beginning at 4 p.m., the public is welcome to attend recitals performed by the students. A concert by Chilean guitarist Carlos Perez culminates the event at 7 p.m.
Guitar Day was started by CSUB music professor Jim Scully to reach out to local youth and invite them to campus for the day. In an interview with The Bakersfield Californian, Scully said the event meets “our larger mission to bring students to campus to hopefully de-mystify college for students who would otherwise have no opportunity to walk onto a college campus.”
