USU Guitar Students Give Fall Concert in Performance Hall


Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013


Utah State University’s Music Department presents the annual fall guitar ensemble concert Friday, Nov. 8, at 7:30 p.m. in the Performance Hall.

 

“This program will feature both acoustic guitar and electric guitar ensembles,” said Corey Christiansen, professor of guitar in the Caine College of the Arts. “The evening will have music ranging from Led Zeppelin to Elias Barreiro.”

 

The performance marks the 36th year that guitar ensembles have given a performance at USU. Music majors participate in ensemble groups in order to sharpen their skills and prepare for the professional world, Christiansen said.

 

“This year we will play everything from Serbian born composer Dusan Bogdanovic to jazz standards from the great American songbook,” said Christiansen. “We will also have music from the Allman Brothers Band and Derek Trucks.”

 

The large group known as Guitarmageddon will also perform. The group features more than 20 acoustic guitars on stage at one time. The group is comprised of music and non-music majors.

 

Tickets are $10 general admission, $8 seniors and youth, $5 USU faculty and staff and free for USU students with ID. For more information and tickets, visit the Caine College of the Arts Box Office located in room 139-B of the Chase Fine Arts Center on USU’s Logan campus, call 435-797-8022 or see the college’s Production Services website.
