Columbia Artists shares raves for multiple GRAMMY winner Sharon Isbin's performance this summer as soloist with the Chautauqua Symphony in the concerto written for her by John Corigliano: "Gorgeous, shimmering focus ... Brilliant, poetic, resonant: Her musical voice is impossible to resist ... a tough act for anyone to follow." Read the full review. Her sold-out recital that followed at the festival was live-streamed to accommodate an overflowing audience!

Sharon Isbin has been soloist with nearly 200 orchestras, and received acclaim the last two seasons with the Montreal, Detroit, National Symphony and many others! Her residencies also include shows for thousands of public school kids. Sharon's 30 albums have sold nearly a million copies, and recent #1 bestsellers include Alma Española with Isabel Leonard honored with a 2018 GRAMMY for Producer of the Year, Guitar Passions, and her GRAMMY-winning Journey to the New World which spent 63 consecutive weeks on top Billboard charts. She is the only guitarist to have recorded with the New York Philharmonic (award-winning Rodrigo/Villa-Lobos/Ponce concerto album), and has premiered more concerti than any other guitarist. This month, she records the exciting concerto Chris Brubeck wrote for her, followed by an album with the Pacifica Quartet in 2019.

The acclaimed documentary, SHARON ISBIN: TROUBADOUR, seen by millions on over 200 PBS stations across the US and abroad, won the prestigious 2015 ASCAP Television Broadcast Award, and was just renewed for another four years of national broadcasts starting this fall by American Public Television. The film profiles her performing at the GRAMMY Awards, Obama White House, with the Minnesota Orchestra, Nashville Symphony, Joan Baez, and many more. Press has been ecstatic, including the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, NPR, PBS and over a dozen national magazines.
 
This is the ideal time to bring Sharon Isbin - who the Washington Post hails as "today’s most famous active guitarist" - to your series.
