In the fifth of our spring 2021 series of livestreamed student performances, Live from the UNLV Performing Arts Center presents Guitarist Kyle Khembunjong.
Las Vegas-based classical guitarist Kyle Khembunjong is a nationally recognized musician, with featured performances and acknowledgments from various highly-esteemed foundations, organizations, and competitions across the United States. Kyle’s introductory exposure to music began at age 5. With an intensifying creative passion arising in middle school at the age of 11, Kyle was introduced to the wonders of the classical guitar by his first mentor, David Flores. Since then, music has been a deeply innate and rewarding ambition worth striving for, graduating high school with an Associate of Arts degree at the College of Southern Nevada High School Dual-Enrollment program and becoming a recipient of the UNLV College of Fine Arts Music Scholarship. In the fall of 2017, Kyle began his advanced guitar studies under the guidance of world-renowned maestro Ricardo Cobo. Khembunjong is currently a sophomore pursuing a bachelor’s degree in music performance at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
