Tomorrow night at 8 p.m., the undergraduate Classical Guitar Ensemble presents its spring concert in Patricia Corbett Theater. The program includes solos, duos, trios, quartets and full company pieces from the vast repertoire of classical guitar ensemble music, which dates back to the medieval times. This concert is free and open to the general public.
A sonata by Telemann for lute consort, transcriptions of 19th century pieces by Mendelssohn and Chopin, a set of tangos written for groups of guitars, a movement from Tedesco’s “Sonatina Canonica” written for the Presti/Lagoya guitar duo, a set of new works written for guitar by Kleynjans, Caluda, Tomiyama and the French guitarist Roland Dyens, evocative Spanish pieces by Falla, Albéniz and Turina all come to life onstage this Tuesday.
CCM’s Classical Guitar Ensemble includes Daniel Blomquist, Donald Broerman, Evan Fiehrer, Bryce Mullins, Kirk Redman, Matthew Schroeder, Patrick Smith, Kevin Topmiller and Andrew Wygant.
The Classical Guitar Department celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2003 and is now in its 38th year. Recently, one of its graduates, Jordan Dodson, was one of two guitarists accepted into Curtis Institute’s new classical guitar program.
