Ben Diamond

Described as “a natural performer who infuses his interpretations with energy, excitement, and a broad expressive range”, Montréal based guitarist Ben Diamond is a well-rounded musician whose passion knows no limits. He is active as an educator, improviser, performer, and collaborator pursuing a wide variety of projects that constantly push the limits of the modern-day classical guitar. A recent graduate from the M. Mus in performance program at Schulich School of Music (McGill University), Ben’s primary focus is collaboration with composers to create new works for the guitar. It is his success in premiering contemporary music and love for community building that has earned him many accolades such as the “CBC 30 under 30 hot classical musicians” in 2021, the 2021 Emerging Artist of the Year award with ArtsNL, and a nomination for the 2021 Classical Musician of the Year award with MusicNL. Ben has also placed in competitions such as the 2019 FCMF National Music Festival (SK), 2022 Twisted Spruce International Competition (Virtual), Festival-concours de musique Sherbrooke (2024), and the 2023 Domaine Forget International Guitar Competition (QC).
