Matthew Korbanic

“Exceptional talent with virtuoso technique” writes Mike Cimballa, music critic and violinist with the Charlotte Symphony. Born and educated in Pittsburgh, Matthew has earned a masters degree in classical guitar performance from Carnegie Mellon University. Some of his noted instructors have been Dr. Nathan Davis, James Ferla, Joe Negri, and Tom Kitka. He has toured the east coast and mid-west. As a performer on the newly innovated 8-string “Brahms” style guitar, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust awarded him a grant to study with Paul Galbraith, a member of the Brazilian Guitar Quartet, solo artist and innovator of the instrument. Matthew has been a return performer with the Three Rivers Arts Festival, the Pittsburgh Opera, Erie Festival of Arts and the Pittsburgh Arts Council. As a soloist and member of a flute and guitar duo, he has been presented live on WQED-FM. Recently, he released Matthew Korbanic: 8-String Guitar which debuts new pieces by Reed Maxson and Robert Maggio.
