During the summer of 2010, the Guitar Foundation of America held its annual convention and international competition in Austin. The Fine Arts Library celebrated the convention by spotlighting its classical guitar-related holdings. With several thousand scores and recordings of solo and ensemble guitar music available for check out, the Fine Arts Library is a rich local resource for music lovers and for performers.
The Austin-based guitar pedagogy program Childbloom Guitar and its ensemble of advanced students Austin Bella Corda were also featured in the FAL exhibit. Soundboard Magazine is the official quarterly magazine published by the Guitar Foundation of America.
