I’ll be performing a lunch concert at Christ & St Stevens Church on Thursday, November 12, at 12:10 PM. We’ll be going on a journey that will include the newest island discoveries in the Archipelago for Solo Guitar, and two world premieres, the newly discovered Islands 5 and 6! I’ve heard guitar concerts at this venue before and the acoustics are really wonderful for the instrument!
