The Next Guitar Society Meeting is Monday May 7th 7-9pm

Venue: Odd Fellows Hall, Corvallis

Free & Open to the Public

I am very excited to announce that Duo Tenebroso from Portland Oregon will be our featured artists at the meeting.

Duo Tenebroso is known for their warm musicality and singular interpretations and combines the powerful playing and excellent musicianship of David Franzen with the award winning Kristen Waligora whose playing has been featured on NPR around the country as a champion of the emotional and expressive qualities of the classical guitar.

They will be releasing their debut album “Portrait” on May 30, 2018, which features the World Premiere recording of “La Danza Grotesque” by American composer Alexander Liss. The album also features new transcriptions for guitar duo of the five movement work “La Humana Primavera” by Spanish composer Víctor Carbajo as well as “Prólogo” from his work “Antígona.” Other music featured on the CD is music by Steve Reich, Sergio Assad, Érik Satie, Antonio Vivaldi, and Domenico Scarlatti. This sounds like great program and I am very much looking forward to hearing them play.
