My Life with the Guitar
The Guitar Music of Tom Baker
$5-15 sliding scale
Performers: Michael Partington, Michael Nicolella, Mark Hilliard Wilson, Satchel Henneman, Cherie Hughes.
This concert will feature guitar music by Seattle composer Tom Baker, spanning the past 25 years. Works for solo classical guitar, guitar and soprano, and for solo electric guitar. Baker published his first guitar composition in 1992, called "The Green Guitar" while a graduate student in music at Arizona State University. Since then, he has written many works that include guitar, both in a solo setting and with ensembles. He has asked several of the area's most accomplished guitarists (and his good friends) to perform several of his guitar works on this evening celebrating the guitar.
