The performance address will be distributed to the RSVP list.
The Brooklyn Guitar Quartet (BGQ) began life in 2006 as an ensemble training project at the Brooklyn College Conservatory of Music. Now permanent, and no longer affiliated with the college, the current line-up includes Lars Frandsen, professor of music at Nyack and Brooklyn Colleges; Jesse Miller, guitar instructor at James Madison High School (and 30 year PLG resident); Carlos Cuestas, DMA candidate at the CUNY Graduate Center; and John Olson, scientist and president of the NYC Classical Guitar Society.
“Nothing is more beautiful than a guitar, save perhaps two” – Frederic Chopin. Then why not four?
BGQ’s repertoire focuses on accessible art music inspired by popular forms. Many of the composers whose music they play are guitarists themselves, such as Andrew York, Paolo Bellinati, Leo Brouwer, and Roland Dyens.
PLG Arts is delighted to include PLG Arts Chamber Music in their current programming, which includes visual arts shows, jazz performance, theater, author readings, and other expressions of creativity in local venues. The Chamber Music series is held at various venues in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens and surrounding neighborhoods.
The mission of PLG Arts is to promote the arts, support local artists, and build community through celebrating the vibrant creativity of the residents of Prospect-Lefferts Gardens and surrounding neighborhoods. For more information, go to plgarts.org.
