"Manuel Barrueco's guitar recital at Alice Tully Hall was the work of not just a guitarist, but of a superior musician."
-New York Times
Grammy nominated Manuel Barrueco is internationally recognized as one of the most important guitarists of our time. His unique artistry has been continually described as that of a superb instrumentalist and a superior and elegant musician, possessing a seductive sound and uncommon lyrical gifts.
His career has been dedicated to bringing the guitar to the main musical centers of the world. During three decades of concertizing, he has performed across the United Sates from the New World Symphony in Miami to the Seattle Symphony, and from the Hollywood Bowl with the Los Angeles Philharmonic to New York’s Lincoln Center. He has appeared with such prestigious orchestras as the Philadelphia Orchestra and with the Boston Symphony under the direction of Seiji Ozawa, in the American Premiere of Toru’s Takemitsu’s To the Edge of Dream. In addition, he appears regularly with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and with San Francisco Performances.
His international tours have taken him to some of the most important musical centers in the world, and his recording catalogue includes over a dozen recordings for the EMI label. Recent CD releases include two recordings that feature the music of Astor Piazzolla: Grammy-nominated "Solo Piazzolla" (2007) as well as "Tango Sensations" (2008), a collaboration with the Cuarteto Latinoamericano that includes the music of Carlos Gustavino. These recordings are part of the exclusive Manuel Barrueco Collection on Tonar Music label.

Open Recital - BYOG (Bring Your Own Guitar) - Open Recital
Date: May 11, 2013, 07:00 PM
Location: Hope Prebyterian Church
Length: 3 hours
Open Stage evenings are set in a very informal atmosphere with a very appreciative audience. All levels of classical guitar playing are welcome – players, listeners, ensembles, guitar with other instruments, whatever! You are welcome to bring your guitar to play, or you can just listen to others. While guests are welcome, we encourage anyone who performs to be a BCGS member.
The Open Stage evenings give players and listeners a chance to meet other members and the BCGS Board members. The Board is more than happy to answer any questions on the BCGS activities, such as upcoming concerts, outreach programs, and how to volunteer for the BCGS.
This is a perfect opportunity for beginners to play elementary pieces in front of a hand-clapping audience, as well as for more experienced players to just have fun sharing their music. YOU ARE NEVER READY TO PLAY, SO JUST COME AND DO IT! There is a 10 minute limit per player. After the playing is over, there will be plenty of time to mingle and enjoy refreshments. Players have the opportunity to earn Performance Certificates – a great way to expand your guitar portfolio.
