A SPECIAL EVENT ~
CLASSICAL GUITAR MEETS CLASSIC WINE
We would like to invite you to participate in the below program entitled, Classical Guitar meets Classic Wine on Sunday May 15th, at 3 pm. We are excited about partnering with the German Society of Pennsylvania to pair classical guitar music with curated flights of wine. Germany has a long tradition of great classic music composers, a thriving classical guitar culture, as well as a history of building fine classical guitars, like the Munich-based Hauser family, now in its third generation. And Germany also makes some excellent wines.
The audience is being asked to appreciate the wine while listening to live classical guitar performance, including Alejo de los Reyes, John Williams, William Newman and John Penn, all of whom have performed for the PCGS in the past. There will also be a professional sommelier present to introduce and discuss the wines. As such, the relationship between music and wine can serve as a catalyst for enlightenment and conversation, and of course fun! Reserve your seats now!
Proof of vaccination is required to attend, so please bring your vaccination card (or a clear photo of it) and a valid ID. The Solo Classical Guitar Program includes:
Cello Suite No. 1 Prelude (Germany – BWV 1007 by J.S. Bach, 1685 – 1750)
