For the 30th anniversary in 2017-2018, BCGS’ artistic director Manuel Barrueco has selected four Baltimore composers to write works for the classical guitar. These are: Gabriel Bouche Caro, Jordan Chase, Edmund Scott Miller, and Samuel Winnie.
All compositions were inspired by Baltimore and the whole project received the title “Made in Baltimore,” as it is entirely Baltimore based: Baltimore composers (established) nominated young and rising Baltimore composers for the commission. After selecting the four Baltimore composers, they were paired with young and rising Baltimore guitarists. We also paired them with Baltimore mentors who are working with them to get the works ready for world-premiere. Therefore, “Made in Baltimore.”
Please join us for this 60-minute concert in which the composers will be interviewed on stage about their commission and the commissioning experience, right before the world-premiere of each of their works.
We hope you support this worthy project by purchasing tickets to this event. Concerts are meant to be shared, please consider bringing friends to this performance!
THIS CONCERT IS FREE FOR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18. TO RESERVE FREE TICKETS, PLEASE EMAIL ADMIN@BCGS.ORG. IF YOU ARE PURCHASING TICKETS AND NEED ADDITIONAL FREE TICKETS, PLEASE INCLUDE A NOTE WITH YOUR TICKET PURCHASE IN THE COMMENT BOX WHEN CHECKING OUT.
