Award-winning guitarist Peter Fletcher will perform classical guitar pieces from Bach to Spanish composers at two Martin County libraries Wednesday, February 6:  2:00 p.m. at the Blake Library in Stuart and 6:30 p.m. at the Elisabeth Lahti Library in Indiantown.

In 1980 classical guitarist Jose Tomas, Andres Segovia’s teaching assistant in Spain, held a week long master class in Atlanta, GA. Peter Fletcher was the youngest student to perform in the class, playing music by Bach and Carcassi.

In December, 1983, he made his formal debut at the age of  fifteen under the auspices of The Brasstown Concert Association in North Carolina. Wrote the critic of The Cherokee Scout, “He has technical facility but what one remembers about his playing is the nuances, the poetical phrasing, dynamic and tonal changes, his harmonics, his cadences.”

Fletcher furthered his studies in Master Classes with David Leisner, David Russell, Oscar Ghiglia and Pepe Romero. He received the Master of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music under Nicholas Goluses, and was twice the recipient of an Eastman Graduate Award.

  Come see him before he performs at Carnegie Hall!
