The UMass Boston Performing Arts Department Presents the First of Our Spring 2017 Faculty Concert Series Events

A World of Guitar: Virtuoso Guitar Music from Six Continents introduces guitar music from around the world performed by two of America's top solo guitarists: Stone Records recording artist Aaron Larget-Caplan and EWM Records artist Peter Janson, both faculty at UMass Boston. 

The highest level of artistry, technical mastery, and emotive qualities of the acoustic guitar are presented to the audience with sonic landscape and evocative mood stemming from the vastly rich variety of human culture as expressed in its guitar music: songs that cross genres and styles from americana and celtic, to classical and flamenco, to world-jazz-fusion for an unforgettable musical adventure. A World of Guitar features music for solo guitar, and duets, that reveal a mutual devotion to the heart, soul, and inspiration of great guitar music.
