Guest guitarist Noe Garcia joined members of Guitar Fort Worth and TCU Symphony Orchestra faculty for a performance in PepsiCo Recital Hall. The festival also included the world premiere of Panamanian composer Roque Cordero’s Cantata for Peace, which the National Endowment for the Arts commissioned 50 years ago to honor all peacemakers, but especially four famous victims of violence — Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi. The four-day festival culminated in a Grand Finale Fiesta featuring Ballet Azteca, mariachi music and salsa dancing.
