Evening Concert

featuring Michael Nigro

Date: Sept. 30

Time: 7 p.m.

Place: Gilder Recital Hall

MOUNT VERNON—Accomplished guitarist Michael Anthony Nigro will perform Tuesday, September 30 at 7 p.m. in Gilder Recital Hall on the Mount Vernon campus. Nigro’s program will feature works by prominent and less known South American composers.  The program is varied from folkloric dances and songs to sophisticated works full of colorful impressionism.             

             

“The Long Beach Gazette” recently reviewed Mr. Nigro’s concert and published the following review, “Nigro is an excellent guitarist, drawing a multitude of tone colors from his instrument and displaying great technical dexterity. He has a wide dynamic range, a very pretty sound, and an ability to vary his articulation for expressive purposes.”  

             

The acclaimed guitarist has released a new recording, “Guitar Sudamericana,” which he will highlight during his performances. His debut CD, “Homage to Piazzolla,” is released on the label, Music and Arts. The American Record Guide writes, “It’s a pleasant collection of spiky Argentine rhythms interspersed with soulful milongas. Nigro has a big sound, a smooth tone, and sure-footed interpretive instincts.

Nigro has given performances at many esteemed colleges, universities, libraries, and guitar societies.  Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, writes, “Nigro’s sound was warm and smooth on certain sections and became more pronounced on fast sections requiring physical dexterity. These pieces from Villa-Lobos demonstrated Nigro’s greatest strength: his ability to create varying tones of both warmth and brightness using the full range of the instrument.”

Nigro is an active member of the guitar community; he is co-founder of the Long Beach Classical Guitar Society, independent reviewer for Soundboard Magazine, and sought after teacher and performer.

Michael is presently on the faculty at Vanguard University in Costa Mesa, Calif. where he is the head of the guitar department. For artist info, log on to www.nigroclassicalguitar.com or call 562-377-0591.
