One of Tucson’s great treasures is the musical residency of the extraordinary David Russell at the University of Arizona. The Grammy Award-winning artist comes every year to teach and to perform, thanks to the legacy of Sandy Bolton. Russell also judges the David Russell Bach Prize Recital, which presents four top guitar students playing works of Johann Sebastian Bach. This year one of the players will be awarded a custom guitar by German luthier Dennis Tolz, who will be present at the event.
