The Lensic Performing Arts Center presents International Guitar Night. A touring initiative in its twenty-third year, IGN features a quartet of guitarists from around the world, each performing in their own styles and traditions. Returning to the Lensic for a third time, this stunning showmanship of diverse talent and artistry is adored for good reason.

Jocelyn Gould (Canada) is a traditional jazz guitarist and vocalist who cites Grant Green, Kenny Burrell, Wes Montgomery, and Joe Pass as primary influences of the instrument. Her 2021 album Elegant Traveler was nominated for Jazz Album of the Year by the Juno Awards.

Jesús Guerrero (Spain), began playing guitar at eleven years old under the tutelage of master teacher José Luis Balao. His natural virtuosity with the instrument and his musical creativity have led him to be one of the most sought-after figures in the flamenco scene.

Stephanie Jones (Australia), soloist, chamber musician, and expert classical guitar player has released two solo albums and performs extensively around the globe. She is currently studying a Konzertexamen in Classical Guitar Performance with Thomas Müller-Pering at the prestigious University of Music Franz Liszt.

Olli Soikelli (Finland) has been cementing his name in the gypsy jazz scene after being introduced to the music of Django Reinhardt as a teenager. He has played legendary venues including Birdland Jazz Club, Blue Note, and Lincoln Center.
