In the face of the state’s budget crisis, Scott Morris is working to maintain the notoriety that the guitar program
and music department at California State University, Dominguez Hills earned by hosting the annual conference
of the Guitar Foundation of America in 2007. This past Labor Day weekend Sept. 4-6, Morris presented the first
Dominguez Hills Guitar Festival and Competition in the University Theatre and LaCorte Hall with the help of international colleagues, fellow performers, and donations of cash prizes, guitars and equipment from corporate sponsors.
