Come to Crowell Public Library on Sunday, June 30 at 2:00 p.m. for a relaxing, thoroughly enjoyable hour of lyrical solo guitar music performed by Andre Giraldo. His song selection will include works by Heitor Villa Lobos from Brazil, Nikita Koshkin from Russia and Jorge Morel from Argentina. There is something for everyone from the serious classical music aficionado to the causal listener, and it will also be a great opportunity to expose children to a live music experience in a casual environment.
Andre believes in the power of music to transcend boundaries and enrich the lives of those who engage with it, and his goal is to reach as wide an audience as possible and connect with audiences. The solo project ties into his goal of trying to spread culture and arts engagement with the community using the library system as the focal point for information and culture. He has performed extensively both as a soloist and chamber musician at guitar societies and various libraries and around the area including Sierra Madre, San Clemente, Aliso Viejo, San Clemente, Cerritos, and Santa Monica.
Andre Giraldo is a Los Angeles-based guitarist who performs widely both as a soloist and as a member of The Artisan Guitar Ensemble, a guitar trio formed during his time studying at Cal State Fullerton. He has performed in master classes for Roland Dyens, Pavel Steidl, Martha Masters and many others and has studied privately with John Dearman, and Richard Turner and David Grimes. He received his B.M. in Classical Guitar Performance from CSUF. But Andre believes that the best classroom is the stage itself, and continually seeks the opportunity to perform in order to reach new levels as a musician.
Come learn about the composers and their music and stay after to chat with the performer or ask any questions you may have! All are invited and we hope to see you here for this special event.
