The Trio Cuerdas al Aire is comprised of members of the Guitar Faculty at the Caroline L. Guarini Department of Music, Dance and Theatre of New Jersey City University. Francisco Roldán of Zig-Zag Quartet, a faculty member since 2011, and João Luiz of the acclaimed Brasil Guitar Duo, at NJCU since 2012, are both very active performers. The coordinator of the program and founding member of the trio, Ana María Rosado, at NJCU since 1989, also combines her teaching career with an active presence as a performer locally and internationally.
