St Catherine's concerts
I have been delighted to bring many of my Latin American friends here to the Island, and to see them in concert in the beautiful setting of St Catherine's church in Ventnor. As and when they are on tour in Europe, I am able to be their host, and St Catherine's
is a very welcoming venue. David Tamcken and his team have worked hard to make the concerts a success, and I'm very
grateful to him for all his help and support.
We have kept ticket prices to an absolute minimum, so as to encourage as many people as possible to experience and enjoy the guitar music. The concerts offer a great opportunity to see authentic Latin American music, and also to provide a meeting place for guitar lovers on the island.
Performers have included Luis Alberto Soria, Carlos Carmona, Victor Villadangos and Analia Rego, who are all top class guitarists from Argentina. We also enjoyed a harp concert given by virtuoso Colombian harpist Ricardo Curbelo. We were recently treated to a fine concert, given by Argentine guitarist/composer Pepe Ferrer, and included the delightful sounds of the oboe and cor anglais of Sarah Williams.
Details of any forthcoming concerts will be posted on this page, and if you would like to be on the mailing list then please send me your email address.
