The San Jacinto College Central Campus Music Department invites music lovers to enjoy a night of “magic” on April 24 when student ensembles and soloists take the stage to present a concert titled An Evening of Guitar.

The College Guitar Ensemble, Guitar 1 Class Ensemble, and individual private lesson soloists will perform a range of compositions, many flowing with Spanish influence.

Music Professor Jeremy Garcia said audience members are in for a dynamic performance filled with “excitement and entertainment.”

“Come experience the magic of an intimate evening of guitar,” he added.

The College Guitar Ensemble will perform four pieces including “Malaguena,” written by Garcia, “Romance,” by Didier Coll, “Quartet in D” by G.P. Telemann, and “Rumba Catalan” by Hansjoachim Kaps.

The Guitar 1 Class Ensemble will follow performing “Lament,” and “Aeolian Dream,” both composed by Garcia, along with “Vals” by Bartolome Calatayud.

The soloists taking private lessons will round out the show performing selections dating from the Renaissance era to the present day.

Alejandro Herrera, a College Guitar Ensemble member said the concert gives students the opportunity to showcase the result of their dedicated study.

“This semester we have been learning a lot of Spanish influence pieces that require a lot of technical abilities and patience to maintain and produce a great performance,” Herrera said.

The students dedicate countless hours in the pursuit of technique and musicality. Garcia said he encourages his students to study pieces that increase their understanding of their instrument and its capabilities, as well as its limitations, thus furthering their ability to channel their creativity. 

“Music is all about self-expression,” he said. “My goal is to give students all the tools available to be able to unleash their own powers of expression.”

An Evening of Guitar takes place at 7 p.m. on April 24 in Corbin Hall of the Monte Blue music building (C5) on the Central Campus. There is no charge for admission.
