The Story of the Guitar: A Musical Journey

Guitarist Mychal Gendron presents a program of music from the European tradition for classical guitar plus newer works from Asia, Latin America, and the U S. He is offering this program FREE for our community to enjoy!

Mychal has been active as a performer for over thirty years, appearing solo as well as in both small and large ensembles. He has toured Brazil as a soloist under the aegis of Partners of the Americas, performing in music festivals and on television in that country. He participated in chamber music recitals at the Fete di Limans in France and has performed at Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico. In the U.S., Mychal has presented solo guitar recitals on concert series throughout the country, including all six New England States.
In the New England area, Mychal has performed concertos with the Vermont Symphony, the Cape Ann Symphony, the RI Philharmonic Community Orchestra, the Ocean State Chamber Orchestra and the Fall River Symphony. Local solo and ensemble performances include Blithewold Mansion and Gardens, the Lippit House Museum, the First Baptist Church in America and the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, plus appearances on college concert series at Brown University, University of Rhode Island and Rhode Island College.

The first half of the program – Guitar in the Age of Enlightenment – traces the repertoire of the guitar from the 1500’s through the middle of the 19th century and includes Renaissance dance works, music of J.S. Bach and Classical/Romantic works from the time of Mozart and Beethoven.

The second half of the program – New Expressions for Guitar – features 20th century music from Brazil, Cuba, Japan and America plus contemporary European works for guitar. There will be a short intermission between the two program segments.

Mychal will also include information about the composers, history and culture, plus the music itself as part of his presentation.
