Opening the January concert was Remington Griffin, a 13 year old classical guitarist from San Marcos. Remington began studying piano at age 5 and decided to branch out, at age 8, into guitar to facilitate his dream of becoming a rock star. By 1999, he redefined his true musical capacity with the classical guitar. He participates in local master classes with some of the finest guitarists in the world. Remington was recently named as a semi-finalist in a national solo competition sponsored by the American String Teachers Association.
