“One of the 21 composers / performers who sound like tomorrow” (The Washington Post), JIJI is equally at home on acoustic and electric guitar, and is the first guitarist to win the prestigious Concert Artists Guild Award in 30 years. She is a must-hear, once-in-a-generation artist. Her program, Classical Goes Electric, begins in the Italian Renaissance and ends in the present day, bringing together composers like Paganini, Tania León, Steve Reich, and JIJI herself.
“A graceful and nuanced player...she presented an intimate, captivating performance.”The Kansas City Star
