The featured artist for this meeting will be Pablo Figueroa from Argentina.
His first teacher was his father, Juan Carlos, who encouraged him to follow his path to a music career in the world of guitar. In 1991 at 15 years of age Pablo was awarded first prize in the Rosario Association of Guitar Competition. He then went on tour throughout Argentina, Uruguay, and Italy before settling in Buenos Aires, and, since then, has worked with diverse and recognized artists developing a great versatility in Latin American rhythms. In 2009 Pablo won the gold prize for the best international song in Viña del Mar, Chile. More recently Pablo has composed and recorded an album of contemporary Jazz entitled “Pulsionando” and, in 2018, Pablo performed at the Sao Paulo, Brazil Tango Festival along with local Oregonian guitarist Craig Einhorn.
The May 6th meeting will also include our OPEN GUITAR ENSEMBLE SESSION. We will be reviewing some of the music we have played so far this year in anticipation of the winter concert series later on in the year. The music will be posted to the website one week ahead of the meeting so check out the scores online http://www.corvallisguitarsociety.org , download the parts you would like to play and bring them along to the meeting with your guitar and join in! EVERYONE is welcome and the scores include parts suitable for all levels of playing.
