The Victoria Guitar Trio has been active in Western Canada for nearly a decade and has made a name for themselves through the exceptional artistry they demonstrate in performance and programming. As one of their commissioned composers, I can attest to the virtuosity of their playing and depth of their curatorial vision. Their concerts often feature a far-reaching stylistic palette that has won them a large audience in a short period of time. – Jordan Nobles

Highly accomplished musicians with thought provoking yet accessible music. – Jason Hall, The Vancouver Observer

As a composer I have had the good fortune to have a piece premiered by the Victoria Guitar Trio. This piece is somewhat complicated and contains both aleatoric elements and a ‘tape’ part throughout. The dedication and attention to detail provided by the three guitarists of this ensemble made the whole experience of seeing the piece come to life an enjoyable and rewarding experience. The Victoria Guitar Trio ‘rocks’. – Wes RD Wraggett

“The Victoria Guitar Trio are three solid and literate performers, fearless in their execution of new material that expands the boundaries of guitar repertoire.” -Murray Visscher

The second half of the concert closed with an unmistakably Piazzolla tango, Evasion in a very effective arrangement. Here the Trio accentuated the drive of the rhythm without losing the charm of Piazzolla’s melody. This was a tremendous way to close out the programme…I for one am looking forward to their next appearance on a Victoria stage. – Music in Victoria

Energetic and engaging, the Victoria Guitar Trio is one of Canada’s finest guitar ensembles. Virtuoso playing and captivating programming make the VGT a group to listen for! – Dr. Alexander Dunn
