Guitarist Colin McAllister is the Coordinator of the Music Program at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs and co-director of the Peak Frequency Creative Arts Collective. Via a diverse range of musical interests, an uncommon versatility, and a dynamic stage presence, he maintains an active performance schedule throughout the United States, Mexico, and Europe. A compassionate advocate for the contemporary repertoire, Colin has premiered over fifty new works and has worked closely with many leading composers including Helmut Lachenmann and Tristan Murail. He has played in numerous contemporary and chamber music festivals (Monday Evening Concerts, sfSound, New Music DePaul, Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival, Darmstadt Ferienkurse für Neue Musik, Festival Hispanoamericano de Guitarra, Dallas Festival of Modern Music, Foro Internacional de Música Nueva Manuel Enríquez, Seattle Transport Jazz, Bohem Ragtime Festival, Breda Jazz Festival, among others) and held visiting artist residencies at the Centro Mexicano para la Música y las Artes Sonoras, University of Wisconsin, Oberlin Conservatory of Music, and UNAM of Mexico City. Colin has recorded for the Innova, Albany, Old King Cole, Vienna Modern Masters, Carrier and Tzadik record labels. He has two publications with Productions d’OZ: The Vanguard Guitar and Fourteenth Century Counterpoint: Music of the Chantilly Codex. The Vanguard Guitar was praised by Soundboard magazine as “a great success…not only a primer of modern techniques, but also a library of current performance practices.”
