Classical Guitarist Peter Fletcher - In Concert 4/28 at 6:30 PM

"Every time classical guitarist Peter Fletcher appears at Carnegie Hall, he has a packed house. Whether audience members are hearing him for the first time or were so enraptured by his technical skill and poised delivery that they’ve become diehard fans, Fletcher understands how to put together a repertoire that keeps audiences wanting more. And that is his genius." 
-- William Gooch, Fashion Reverie

Peter Fletcher, GuitaristOn Friday, April 28th at 6:30 PM classical guitarist Peter Fletcher will return to the Lane Memorial Library for a concert celebrating his upcoming appearance at Carnegie Hall, presenting a program filled with music by Bach, Albéniz, Satie and other composers who wrote or have been transcribed for 6-string guitar.  The concert will be in the lower Lane Room, and is free and open to all.

Peter has been giving over 100 concerts a year since 2003, and currently is on a nationwide tour. Peter loves giving concerts and feels that people should hear the natural acoustics of the instrument. He also feels that with concerts, sometimes a connection can be made between performer and audiences which is impossible with recorded music.   He balances well known works, such as Simple Gifts and Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring, with standard classical guitar music, and with his new transcriptions which in many cases have never been performed on classical guitar before.
Peter Fletcher began guitar study at the age of seven under classical guitar instructor, John Sutherland. In 1980 maestro José Tomás, Andrés Segovia’s teaching assistant in Spain, held a week long Master Class in Atlanta, GA. Peter Fletcher was the youngest student to perform in the class, playing music by Bach and Carcassi.

In December, 1983, he made his formal debut under the auspices of The Brasstown Concert Association in North Carolina. Wrote the critic of The Cherokee Scout, “He has technical facility but what one remembers about his playing is the nuances, the poetical phrasing, dynamic and tonal changes, his harmonics, his cadences.”

Fletcher furthered his studies in Master Classes with David Leisner, David Russell, Oscar Ghiglia and Pepe Romero. As a performer in the Christopher Parkening Master Class in 1988, he was broadcast on National Public Radio (NPR). In 1990, the Music Teacher’s National Association (MTNA) awarded Fletcher a prize at its National Level Competition, and in 1995 he received the Master of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music under Nicholas Goluses, and was twice the recipient of an Eastman Graduate Award.
