Alberta Khoury

The prodigious talent of Australian-born Alberta Khoury was first realized when she received a guitar on her third birthday. By age four, she had blown through her practice books and was on to formal training. By age eight, she was scooping up prestigious young artist awards and giving recitals abroad. All along the way, Khoury has continued to hone her craft through study with some of the globe’s most renowned classical guitarists, including her current mentor at the Juilliard School—2015 ELLNORA Artist-in-Residence Sharon Isbin. Experience Khoury’s captivating musicianship both with the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet at 12:30pm and solo in this club-style concert.

Club-style performances offer first-come, first-served seating at tables of four in the Studio Theatre. Full bar service with snacks is available during the performance.

This performance will last approximately 60 minutes with no intermission.
