The Xavier Classical Guitar Series is excited to have Berta Rojas performing on November 9!
Renowned for her flawless technique and innate musicality, Berta Rojas ranks among today’s foremost classical guitarists. She has been praised as “guitarist extraordinaire” by the Washington Post and by Classical Guitar Magazine as an “Ambassador of the classical guitar.”
Berta’s acknowledged warmth and musicality have accorded her a place of preference among audiences that have applauded her at such major stages as the Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall and the Frederick P. Rose Hall of Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York, London’s South Bank Centre, Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., and the National Concert Hall in Dublin where she performed as a soloist with the Irish Radio and Television Orchestra, or Flagley Studio 4 in Brussels where she performed with the Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra for the Belgian National Television. She also had the honor of opening the Summit of the First Ladies of the Americas attended by then First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Solo performances by Berta Rojas showcase her interpretive and technical mastery that introduces audiences to new compositions in addition to offering wonderful interpretations of the most traditional repertoire of the guitar. At each concert Berta takes audiences on a colorful journey of sound that includes introducing novel works by composers from diverse traditions. Performing pieces by new composers, Berta helps rejuvenate the traditional classical guitar repertoire.
Rojas has been honored as a Fellow of the Americas by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts for her artistic excellence. She is also privileged to be the Ambassador of Tourism for her country, Paraguay.
