The California Center for the Arts, Escondido will present International Guitar Night on Sunday, February 18.
Since beginning in 1995, International Guitar Night has been bringing the finest acoustic guitar players from around the world together for a night of awe-inspiring music that you won’t soon forget.
Created by Brian Gore as a way to bring together masters of different styles for collaboration and fun, International Guitar Night has grown from its original home in a converted Laundromat to multiple sold out worldwide tours.
This year’s tour is no different, featuring an all-star lineup of styles and genres. Hosting the evening is Germany’s Gypsy Jazz Legend Lulo Reinhardt. The grandnephew of iconic jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, Lulo has continued his ancestor’s sound and legacy with a talent for acoustic guitar that is celebrated from coast to coast.
Joining Reinhardt is Canadian contemporary sensation and YouTube star, Calum Graham. At just 24, Graham, has enjoyed a career most double his age would envy and has developed a two-hand playing style all his own. International Guitar Night also welcomes Poland’s innovative composer/guitarist, Marek Pasieczny. Rounding out the tour is the only guitarist to ever win First Prize at the world’s top Classical and Fingerstyle competitions, American Michael Chapdelaine.
The Center is located at 340 N. Escondido Blvd. in Escondido. The Ticket Office can be reached at (800) 988-4253. Tickets can also be purchased online. To learn more, including performance dates, times and ticket information, visit artcenter.org.
