CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Department of Music at Austin Peay State University (APSU) is gearing up to welcome professional guitarists to campus for the annual Guitar Fest, featuring workshops and free concerts from March 18-19.
This year’s distinguished guest artists are solo guitarist-composer Mark Delpriora and the Cochran-McAllister Guitar Duo, which consists of Matthew Cochran and Matthew McAllister.

Delpriora is the chair of the guitar program at the Manhattan School of Music and guitar instructor at the Juilliard School. He will host a concert on Monday, March 18, focusing on his original compositions along with works by 19th-century Spanish guitar composer Fernando Sor and 20th-century Spanish composer Federico Moreno-Torroba.

Cochran is a guitar instructor at Michigan’s prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy, and McAllister is a lecturer in classical guitar at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. On Tuesday, March 19, the Cochran-McAllister Guitar Duo will perform a program ranging from baroque classics to their groundbreaking arrangements of contemporary film music and jazz.

Both concerts will take place at 7.30 p.m. in the George & Sharon Mabry Concert Hall located inside the Music/Mass Communication Building. Thanks to the support of the Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts (CECA) and the Clarksville Arts and Heritage Council, both concerts are free and open to the public.

For more information, please contact Dr. Stanley Yates at [email protected] or the APSU Department of Music at (931) 221-7818.
