Performance with Seattle Guitar Orchestra at Northwest Guitar Festival


I am honored to be scheduled to perform the solo in the world premiere of The Secret Life of Trees as well as playing part one in My First Concert at the 2023 Northwest Guitar Festival in Bellingham, Washington in the WWU PAC Concert Hall. These are two compositions by the Ukrainian composer and guitarist Oleg Boyko. The Secret Life of Trees is based on the book, The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben. It is a suite with a soloistic guitar part I will perform, accompanied by the Seattle Guitar Orchestra, and is similar to a concerto. The second piece, My First Concert, is a concerto in which, as part of the Seattle Guitar Orchestra, I will accompany young guitarist Dru Salerno, a student of Stella Kosim. These performances will be part of the festival showcase on the Sunday of the festival, April 2, 2023 - under the baton of Mark H. Wilson.  More information at...   (story edited on 4-2-23)
