Guest Artist Yishai Fisher
The University of Arkansas Guitar Program hosted Guest Artist Yishai Fisher (Israel) in a masterclass and concert that featured nylon, electric and steel string guitars. New music for two guitars was premiered by Yishai and U of A faculty Jake Hertzog.
We believe in a complete and versatile approach to the instrument – in this photo U of A guitar program freshman from Rogers, Arkansas, Bryce Holcomb (classical) and Joey Vanderslice (jazz), perform with their hard rock group off campus!
