Guthman Musical Instrument Competition

Presented by Georgia Tech

A music, engineering, and tech mashup, the Georgia Tech Guthman Musical Instrument Competition is an annual event aimed at identifying the world's next generation of musical instruments and unveiling the best new ideas in musicality, design, engineering, and impact. The Guardian called the competition "The Pulitzer of the New Instrument World." Meet some of the most innovative instrument makers from around the world as they perform alongside the best musicians from Georgia Tech and around Atlanta. Then vote on your favorites and learn who the audience and the judges pick as this year's winners!
Come early, beginning at 4 pm, to see musicians, artists, engineers, and makers showcase their latest work at the Guthman Music, Art, and Technology Fair - a hands-on, interactive showcase. Note that the Fair is in a different building on the GT campus.
