Michael MacManus

The Melbourne Guitar Festival is my life and passion. My vision is to become the world’s leading classical guitar organisation, and favourite classical concert and festival experience. My mission for the MGF is to be accessible to all, delight, surprise and exceed expectations.
As a performing musician myself, both as soloist and with the Melbourne Guitar Quartet, sharing quality music with audiences is an integral value to me.

I completed my Master Degree in music performance (classical guitar) at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, University of Melbourne, in 2017.
Since completing my studies, my time has been split between performance, private teaching and working on the Melbourne Guitar Festival concert series and 3 day annual festival.

The Melbourne Guitar Festival has seen enormous growth since our first festival in 2015, and your generous support will allow the MGF to continue to share world class performances and experiences with everyone.
