Ethnomusicology Guitar Student Robert “Chili” Corder Wins 2nd Place in Guitar Competition

August 20th, 2014 · 6 Comments

We’ve heard from Robert (“everyone calls me Chili”) Corder about his recent trip to the Wilson Guitar Competition, where he won 2nd Place. He was sponsored by the School of Music’s Student Opportunity Fund.

He says, “I won second place in the jazz division of the 2nd annual Wilson Center Guitar competition in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This was an all-ages, international guitar competition with 16 semi-finalists. My legal name is Robert but I’m known at UCLA and professionally as Chili Corder. I also just negotiated an endorsement deal with Hofner Guitars and I’ve attached a promotional headshot from the company.”

Congratulations, Chili!
