A new music series begins at Crowell Library with: Classical Guitar Duets

Two outstanding guitarists will present a fine evening of classical music featuring such composers as Bach, Mozart and Stravinsky on Thursday, September 26 at 7:00 p.m. in the Library’s Barth Community Room.

PRLog - Aug. 27, 2013 - SAN MARINO, Calif. -- .  This special performance kicks off the Library’s new series of free quarterly concerts, featuring a range of musical styles and instruments, brought to you by the Friends of the Crowell Public Library and the San Marino Music Center.  This guitar duo will be comprised of John Axume and Patrick Shiroishi.

John studied classical guitar under the direction of Peter Yates at Cal Poly Pomona.  While there, John helped found a guitar trio known as the Classical Guitar Project which performed extensively throughout Los Angeles, making appearances at USC, UCLA, Cal State San Bernardino, Guittara California at Cuesta College (San Luis Obispo), as well as for the LA Philharmonic Society. John then turned his attention to jazz and studied under the late, great LA guitarist Ronald Muldrow.  John went onto perform as a jazz guitarist at such venues as Steamers in Fullerton, The Hip Kitty in Claremont, and as a featured artist for KJazz Summer Concert Series at Century City Plaza.  Last year, John opened the San Marino Music Center where he teaches guitar full time.  Patrick Shiroishi earned a Bachelor of Music in Classical Guitar Performance under the instruction of Jeff Cogan at the Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music at Chapman University.  While at Chapman, he actively performed in the Conservatory Guitar Quartet and Duo, which in 2008 took first place in a nationwide competition in Brownsville, Texas.  He was also given the Guitarist of the Year Award in 2009.  Patrick currently teaches guitar and saxophone at San Marino Music Center.

You won’t want to miss this blissful evening of free classical music at Crowell Library.  Light refreshments will be served.  For more information on the San Marino Music Center, visit: http://www.sanmarinomusiccenter.com/index.html.
