Irene Gomez gathered some of her students at the Conservatorio of Music in Bogota to prepare in one week a special concert for Guitar Fest, a week devoted to the guitar and organized by  guitar students.

Irene conducted the Three parts Shymphony BWV 790, by J.S. Bach, Homenaje a la tristeza by American guitarist and composer Eddie Healy, and two dances by Petr Van Der Staak.

The concert was at the Chapelle of the National University  on past November 22nd.

On past October, Irene Gomez performed during the cloture of month celebration of Saint Francis in Bogota. Young talented Colombian musicians Gabriela Ruiz and Alvaro Tinjaca joined her for this special evening.  Priest Alfonso Rincon  director of the Foundation "Music in churches"  organized this celebration.

In July 2013, Irene Gomez performed a rare concert with works by Villalobos, Lauro, Brouwer, Gardel, Coulanges. Colombian Consul Elsa Gladys Cifuentes attended this special performance of Irene.

In July 2013, Irene Gomez´s rendition of Granada (I. Albeniz), has been chosen by the Juilliard Alumni Office as "Video of the Month".

In June Irene Gómez is invited to National Radio to talk about her career, the guitar in her country and her experience as a worldwide concert player. Irene received one of the few copies that this important cultural radio station in Colombia made of historic recordings of the guitar between 1968-1978.

Every Friday evening The Dolphin Book Shop,  a visited place by President Obama, invites a musician or poet to perform. On March, Irene was the guest of this cozy warm place in Long Island.
