Concert by Minneapolis Guitar Quarter at AC4TA on Nov. 6
Fergus Falls — With imagination, artistry, and musical mastery, the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet has made its case as “one of the major guitar ensembles in the world” (Soundboard Magazine). The foursome will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 6 on stage at A Center for the Arts in downtown Fergus Falls. This is the third performance in AC4TA’s 2015-16 On-Stage Concerts and only 50 tickets are available.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $6 for students; and can be purchased online at www.FergusArts.org, by phone at 218-736-5453, or at our box office at 124 W. Lincoln Ave., downtown Fergus Falls.
Formed in 1986, the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet is one of the very few guitar ensembles performing the majority of its repertoire from memory. MGQ presents original works and commissions as well as its own brilliant arrangements of music by such composers as Ginastera, Piazzolla, Debussy, and the Finnish folk-based music of Maria Kalaniemi. New arrangements showcase music by jazz pianist Hiromi, Prince’s Purple Rain, and The Easy Beats’ Friday on My Mind.
This concert will include the music of Joaquin Rodrigo, Astor Piazzolla, Alberto Ginastera, David Crittenden, Maria Kalaniemi, Maja Radovanlija and J.S. Bach
The Minneapolis Guitar Quartet has performed in major cities and festivals throughout the U.S. and internationally. As sought-after teachers and collegiate faculty members, they conduct frequent master classes and workshops.
On-Stage Concerts present classical chamber music the way it was intended to be experienced: in a small intimate setting. Audience members are seated on stage with the performers, making seating limited. These concerts are sponsored in part by the Victor Lundeen Company and the Inga M. Johnson Endowment Fund.
AC4TA’s programing is also made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
The mission of A Center for the Arts is: To connect artists and audiences by providing the best possible arts experiences that inspire imagination, curiosity, creativity and learning.
