I am pleased to invite you to my debut recital in The Baroque Room where I will perform
music by the most prominent guitar composers from the Renaissance to the avant-
garde. If you are curious enough to discover what the most precious moments of
guitar history sound like you are more than welcome to reserve your seat. This is a
fundraising concert and all of the money collected will be used towards purchasing a new
concert guitar in 2018.
