My deep gratitude is extended to the Music Department of California State University, Los Angeles for their support and guidance. Special Thanks to Dr. David Connors and Hailey Morris for their vision and guidance in establishing this competition.
In the memory of my parents Gohar & Ovanes Andriassian this annual competition is established . It is with great hopes that this event will bring together performers of the classical guitar in a supportive and encouraging environment to share ideas and build friendships. It is also with the hopes that through this event students will find means to deepen their determination and strive to achieve their goals of becoming the best musicians.
