Featuring Classical Guitarist Hilary Field

We are honored to welcome Hilary as our featured artist for the Corvallis Guitar Society! As an international performing and recording artist, Hilary Field has garnered praise for her dynamic virtuosity, her sensitive musicianship, and for the emotional depth she brings to the heart of classical guitar music. Hilary is a past winner of the Northwest Young Artist Series Competition and was the first guitarist to win the Frances Walton Soloist Competition. She has released several award winning CDs including her debut recording, Music of Spain and Latin America, which was a winner for Classical Album of the Year by the National Association of Independent Record Distributors. Hilary was recently sponsored by the US Embassy to perform and tour in South America, and has been a featured performer in multiple international guitar festivals around the world. Hilary has held faculty positions as the head of the Guitar department at Seattle Pacific University and Pacific Lutheran University in Washington State.
