Samuel Shalhoub graduated from the University of California Santa Cruz in June, 2016, with his Master of Art degree in Music. His emphasis was renaissance lute and classical guitar performance practice, yet he cultivated many of his other talents as well, including conducting wind ensemble, composing for various experimental ensembles, and teaching theory and musicianship to undergraduates. Currently, Samuel performs regularly as a soloist, and with his early music ensemble Apostasy. He is active throughout the central coast, from San Luis Obispo to Santa Cruz, and is currently running for a Board of Trustees seat on the Coast Unified School District School Board. In the future, Samuel hopes to produce his opera, “Music, the Tormentor” which features a guitar orchestra, and open the Cambria Academy of Music in an effort to preserve and cultivate musical arts in his community. At present, Samuel is working as a Music Lecturer for Summer Session's MUSC 6 Classical Guitar Ensemble.
