On Saturday January 15, 2011, Berta Rojas will be playing at the Pick-Staiger Concert Hall in Evanston Illinois.

Moving gracefully between classical and folkloric repertoire, Ms. Rojas has been praised by Guitar International for her "delicate, dynamic and passionate performances." She has appeared at celebrated venues throughout the world, including sold-out concerts at the South Bank Centre in London and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

Creator of the Barrios WorldWideWeb Competition, the world's first online competition for classical guitarists, Rojas is also a professor of guitar at George Washington University and Paraguay's ambassador of tourism. Her program includes selections from her albums Terruno, Cielo Abierto, and Intimate Barrios. In addition to the concert, Ms. Rojas will be giving a free master class on Sunday, January 16 2011 at 11:00 a.m. in Regenstein Recital Hall, 60 Arts Circle Drive, Evanston.
