Pender welcomes guitar greats

Two greats of the guitar world - and two wonderful people - together on one stage. Daniel Bolshoy and Celso Machado will perform for the Pender Music Society audience on Sunday, May 12, at 2 p.m. at the School of Music in Madeira Park.

Virtuoso Brazilian guitarist, percussionist, multi-instrumentalist and composer, Mach-ado transports his audiences through the richness and diversity of Brazilian music and beyond. For 40 years Machado has been performing on concert stages throughout Brazil, Western Europe, Scandinavia, Canada, and the U.S. Considered one of the most versatile and exciting musician/composers of Brazilian music today, his guitar technique is but one of his passions - his gift for making music out of anything and everything around us is his mission in life.

Bolshoy is committed to bringing the guitar to the attention of audiences everywhere. He is regularly praised for his friendly and informative spoken introductions, and progressive programming of solo and chamber music. His concert tours take him from prestigious international concert stages to remote villages and house concerts. He now makes his home in Vancouver, where he heads the guitar division at the University of British Columbia School of Music. He is also the head of the guitar department at the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra School of Music.

Both artists have appeared on our stage before, but now we get to listen to them together, exploring the many different faces of their instrument.

Tickets are $25, available at Gaia's Fair Trade in Gibsons, the Sechelt Visitors Centre, Harbour Insurance in Madeira Park and at John Henry's Marina in Garden Bay.
