Guitar Concerts

The Allegro Guitar Series at UNLV is the result of a dynamic partnership between the UNLV Performing Arts Center and the Fort Worth Classic Guitar Society/Allegro Guitar Society of Dallas, supported by gifts from Dr. Mitchell Forman. Dr. Forman is an osteopathic physician and the founding dean and professor of medicine at Touro University Nevada College of Osteopathic Medicine.

The concerts in the series are presented primarily in the intimate, contemporary, and acoustically live Doc Rando Recital Hall in the Lee & Thomas Beam Music Center. Since the programming is geared to a general audience, you don’t have to be a connoisseur of the classical guitar to enjoy these aural delights. Let these amazing guitarists dazzle and entertain you.
