Battle Six-String

When I think of a guitar competition I think of someone like Stevie Ray Vaughan shredding on his electric guitar. The Texas Guitar Competition at the University of Texas at Dallas, 2601 Floyd Road, will be nothing like that. Instead, it features guys like Thibault Cauvin, a Frenchman who started learning classical guitar at the age of 6. Preliminaries begin Friday at 1 p.m. in the Jonsson Performance Hall. A free concert featuring last year's winners, including Cauvin, will be held on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Call 972-883-2552.
Thu., March 16, 7:30 p.m.
