The Penang State Assemblyman for Tanjong Bunga, YB Teh Yee Cheu 郑雨週 is organising a fingerstyle guitar competition, workshop and concert. It is a healthy activity for youth and teenagers to pick up as a hobby and for seasoned international players to participate and compete in. For some players, it may also serve as an avenue to springboard their careers in the music industry. The concert also helps to promote an appreciation for fingerstyle guitar music, playing and performance and lastly, to inspire the new generation of young guitarists to showcase their talent.
The official sponsor for the venue and hotel is Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa.
The main prizes are sponsored by The Guitar Lair, LBS Music World and The Guitar Store.
