For the first time in history, the Guitar Foundation of America will hold the final round of the International Concert Artist Competition live on two continents in October 2021.  In order to accommodate international travel restrictions, our two North American based finalists, Bokyung Byun (South Korea) and Xu Kun (Alan) Liu (Canada), will compete in Los Angeles at Loyola Marymount University on Friday, October 22nd, hosted by Martha Masters (2000 GFA Winner); and our two European based finalists, Lovro Peretić (Croatia) and Marko Topchii (Ukraine), will compete in Brussels at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel on Sunday, October 24th, hosted by Antigoni Goni (1995 GFA Winner).  

These performances will be held in the presence of a live audience, and will be recorded for deliberation by our distinguished jury. The entire final round with all four competitors will be streamed on the GFA YouTube channel and on Facebook on Saturday, October 30th to our international audience, and will conclude with the announcement of the winners.
