‘A true American master’ (Twentieth Century Guitar) and ‘a musician’s musician’ (American Record Guide), Nicholas Goluses is Professor of Guitar and founder and director of the guitar programs at the Eastman School of Music, where he is a recipient of the Eisenhart Award for Excellence in Teaching and where he is currently Co-Chair of the Strings, Harp and Guitar Department. Before coming to Eastman, he was the first Andrés Segovia Professor at Manhattan School of Music, where he received the doctor of musical arts degree, the Pablo Casals Award, and the Faculty Award of Distinguished Merit.

Goluses’s concert tours as soloist, with orchestra, and as chamber musician have taken him across North America, South America, Europe, Australia, and the Far East to critical acclaim. He has been a featured performer at major festivals throughout the world and has performed as concerto soloist with the Savannah Philharmonic, New Jersey Symphony, Colorado Symphony, Rochester Philharmonic, American Wind Orchestra, Jacksonville Symphony, Heidelburg Symphony, and the Macon Symphony, among others. Goluses is active in a duo with flutist Bonita Boyd and has collaborated with the American and Ying Quartets, violinists Zvi Zeitlin and Juliana Athayde, and tenor Robert Swensen.

Committed to performing new music for the guitar, Goluses has given world premiere performances of over hundred works by many of today’s leading composers, including solo pieces, concertos for guitar and orchestra, and chamber music. His performance editions are published by Alfred Masterworks. He is a voting member of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (Grammy) and is currently on the Board of Directors for the Guitar Foundation of America.
