Ernst Birss

Ernst Birss is a classical guitarist and guitar teacher based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. He performs widely in concerts, and at weddings, receptions and other special occasions in the Edmonton area.

Ernst Birss was first prize winner of the 1998 Northwest Guitar Competition, an annual event open to classical guitarists from Western Canada and the American Pacific Northwest. He was also a performer in the 20th annual Christopher Parkening Masterclass in Bozeman, Montana, and was one of the students chosen to play in the masterclass recital at Reynolds Hall.

In Edmonton Ernst has performed on the McDougall Music Wednesdays at Noon series, the Sunday music series at Holy Trinity Anglican Church and on the Edmonton Classical Guitar Society’s main series (in a duo concert with guitarist Trevor Sanders).
