Event Details

Guitarist and Branford resident Neal Fitzpatrick will present a regular, monthly program of music for classical guitar. Each session will feature a different era, genre, or style from the vast repertoire for classical guitar. Programs will include music from the major eras of Western Music encompassing the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic eras, as well as works from the 20th Century and Modern era-the body of music for classical guitar is indeed an abundance of riches! Neal will sometimes be joined by his colleagues in the Connecticut chamber music scene and his students for solo and ensemble performances.

This month’s program will feature a variety of selections from all the various eras and styles found in the classical guitar repertoire. The program will include works from the 19th century, the 20th century, Spanish favorites, North and South American classics, and some original works by Neal as well. This program displays the rich and long history of the classical guitar and it’s repertoire.
