Brief Bios

Ezekiel Bardash is a Music Performance student at the Aaron Copland School of Music, Queens College. Coming from a musical family, Ezekiel has been playing guitar since age 12. For about four years he studied jazz under the great Jazz guitarist Kenji Shinagawa and played in the Jazz band at the Berkeley Carroll school, with whom he one a Maestro Award at the Heritage Jazz Festival in Boston, Massachusets. However, upon entering Aaron Copland School of Music, he found that he had a hidden passion for classical guitar. He currently studies under Michael Cioffero of the 92nd Street Y School of Music, as well as Bill Anderson at Aaron Copland.

Australian guitarist Rupert Boyd is acclaimed as one of the most talented guitarists of his generation. He has been described by The Washington Post as “truly evocative”, and by Classical Guitar Magazine as “a player who deserves to be heard.” He has performed across four continents, from New York’s Carnegie Hall, to festivals in Europe, China, the Philippines and Australia. His solo CD Valses Poéticos received the following review in Soundboard, the quarterly publication of Guitar Foundation of America: “Boyd’s playing is beautifully refined, with gorgeous tone… musically and technically flawless... [the Granados is] one of the best recorded performances of this work on guitar.”
