On Saturday, March 22, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., classical guitarist Peter Fletcher will perform at the Winyah Auditorium on Cleland Street in Georgetown. Tickets are only $10 per person, and proceeds benefit the Friends of the Georgetown Library.
“It’s an evening of beautiful music, in a gorgeous venue,” enthused library director Dwight McInvaill. “Best of all, the money raised helps pay for our children’s summer program, book collections and special library events all year long.”
Fletcher is an accomplished guitarist with an international fan base. He been featured at cultural venues of the highest caliber, including Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, the Chicago Cultural Center, and the George Eastman House, and in media outlets including National Public Radio, Turner Broadcasting System, Fox, and NBC. His recordings earn both critical acclaim and brisk sales.
Peter Fletcher is no stranger to Georgetown. This wonderful musician has played here several times before to large and enthusiastic audiences. Fletcher’s 2014 program in Georgetown will feature some of his favorite composers, among them Michael Praetorius, Alonso Mudarra, J.S. Bach, Stanley Myers, Maurice Ravel, and Niccolo Paganini. He carries on the Segovia tradition of expanding the comparatively small classical guitar repertoire by transcribing from other instruments and even by commissioning new music.
Tickets may be purchased at the Georgetown Library or at the door. For more information, call 545-3300.
