   A native of Brazil, Aliéksey Vianna is one of the few guitarists equally at ease in the worlds of jazz and classical music alike. While still  an undergraduate, Vianna distinguished himself by winning first place honors  in the Portland Festival Solo Guitar Competition (1998), second place in the  prestigious Stotsenberg International Guitar Competition (1997), first place  in the Schaeffer Guitar Competition (1995), first place in the Sholin Memorial  Guitar Competition (1997) and first place in the Ralph Stevens Guitar Competition (1997). He also received the Tucson Jazz Society award (1995) and the Herb Ellis Award as best jazz guitarist at the 1997 Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival.

   An international concert artist, Vianna has given solo and ensemble recitals in the United States, Brazil, Mexico and France, and performed in master classes of Abel Carlevaro, Oscar Gighlia, David Leisner, Sharon Isbin, Ivan Rijos, Scott  Tennant, Gordon O'Brien, Paul O'Dette, Nigel North and Ralph Towner. At one  of Vianna's recent solo concerts, the music reviewer Ken Keuffel, Jr. from the Arizona Daily Star praised his performance, writing: "Vianna brings loads  of personality to his playing . . . making every lick come alive with polish and fire."

   Vianna began his musical studies in his homeland Belo Horizonte, in 1985 at the age of 10. Although his first instruments were violin and then trumpet, by the age of twelve, he was studying classical guitar with Professors Rogerio  Bianchi, Maria Rachel Marcondes, Jose Lucena Vaz and Fernando Araujo. In 1992  at the Brazilian Festival de Musica de Londrina, Vianna attracted the attention of University of Arizona guitar professor Tom Patterson. He was then offered and accepted a full scholarship to attend that school as a guitar performance  major. Vianna moved to Tucson in 1994, where he is currently completing his  degree while actively teaching and performing. A research grant from the University of Arizona Honor Center enabled Vianna to return to Brazil in the summer of 1997 to study improvisational techniques with the renowned guitarist Marco Pereira.
