In a career spanning more than three decades, recitals and concert tours have taken Canadian guitarist Vincea McClelland across five continents, from the Beijing Concert Hall to the Teatro Juan de Vera in Argentina, from the Paris International Music Fair to the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa and the 10th International Strings Festival in Morocco.
Her playing has been consistently praised for its virtuosity and clarity, dynamic style and remarkable tone described as "luminous" (Guitares, Belgium), "pristine" (Halifax Chronicle Herald, Canada) and "golden...heavenly" (Dorset Guitar Society, England). She has recorded for television in Canada and Germany and for Radio France, CBC Radio-Canada and Chinese State Radio. Vincea's CDs are widely acclaimed for their high quality, energetic musicality and beautiful sound, and are regularly reviewed in international magazines in France (Guitare Classique), Belgium (Guitares), Italy (GuitArt), Germany (Staccato), Poland (Swiat Gitary), England (Classical Guitar Magazine), Canada (WholeNote) and the USA (Soundboard-GFA).
