The Guitar's Story

From the royal courts of Europe, to streets of small villages, to concert stages around the world, the guitar expresses a profound musical language. Join accomplished classical guitarist and conductor Kevin Sherwin for The Guitar's Story. This concert performance will explore music from traditions of both folk and art music, ranging from kingly dances and operatic serenades to native folk traditions of South America and Spain.
There will be a Q&A after the concert.
