This very special concert will weave the magical spells of the eclectic music of Frank Wallace. Composer, guitarist, vihuelist, lutenist, baritone, director, teacher; one of the most prolific guitarist/composers of our time, Frank Wallace’s works have been called “contemporary musical emancipation” by New Music USA.

As a performer, Wallace is known for his “elegant virtuosity” (Classics Today). This program will present selected Wallace solo and ensemble works for guitar and guitar and violin interpreted by artists Robert Ward, Christopher Ladd, Asa Guojonsdottir, David William Ross, Alexander Dunn, Nick Cutroneo, and Daniel Acsadi.

Join us for this evening as we create positive energy from a half-century of creativity by our friend and former BCGS Director, who has stage four cancer. Proceeds from this concert will go toward Frank’s Dance with Cancer GoFundMe campaign.
