As chamber music is often a novelty for a certain audience, the choice of both the repertoire and the didactic script of the performance was made with the intention of affirming the willingness of guitarist Guilherme Santos to perform the activities of public formation for classical music, because only a systematic, permanent and long-term work can cause transformations that signal a consolidation of the musical segment in people’s taste.

The program highlights the great composers, and arrangers of the classical guitar universe, being quite comprehensive and diverse.
