Dear Guitar Enthusiasts, Here is the ensemble music we will be playing at the upcoming meeting October 7th at Odd Fellows Hall starting at 7:30 pm. These are the pieces we plan on performing at the Guitar Society Winter Concert on Saturday December 14th at the Corvallis-Benton County Library. We will rehearse the last four pieces at the October meeting. Everyone is welcome to come and join in. The parts suitably reflect different levels of playing, so take a look at the scores and decide which parts you would like to play, print them out, work on them a bit, and bring them along to the meeting with your guitar. Don’t worry about whether you can play everything, and don’t feel obliged to perform in the concert. The goal is to encourage all local guitarists to pick up their guitars, come along and have fun!
Saturday September 28th 2019 2 – 3 pm Venue: Truckenbrod Pop-Up Gallery, 517 SW 2nd St. Corvallis Free Admission
Jon will be performing at Joan Truckenbrod’s gallery in the setting of Julia Bradshaw’s SURVEY artwork exhibition featuring a mixture of classical guitar music from around the world that reaches out to the moon and beyond. Come along and enjoy both forms of artwork!
