I Heart Market Street, Old Town Toronto’s cool new urban park, welcomes back Karla García to our street stage, located on the east side of Market Street between Front Street and The Esplanade.
Originally from Castro, a town on the Chilean island of Chiloé, Karla García is Toronto-based classically trained guitarist and teacher. As a performer, García has played a wide variety of music including contemporary, folk, fado, rock, classical, Celtic, Latin American, and more, and has participated in many guitar festivals and concerts across North and South America. In 2010 she was named “Best Performer” at the César Cortinas Guitar Contest (Atlántida, Uruguay), and one of the most important Chilean flamenco guitarists, Carlos Ledermann, dedicated a composition, “Suite Emocional,” to her. García has also taught master classes at Festival Entrecuerdas, one of the largest guitar festivals in South America, and has shared the stage with prestigious guitarists from Norway, Italy, Portugal and Canada.
