May 16, 2012 - PRLog -- May 16, 2012 – The Encinitas Guitar Orchestra will perform a concert featuring music written by The Eagles and Spanish guitar legends at 8 p.m. Friday, June 1 at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 925 Balour Drive, Encinitas, CA 92024.

Now in its 8th year, the Encinitas Guitar Orchestra, www.encinitasguitarorchestra.com, is a community-based acoustic, classical guitar ensemble consisting of 25 to 30 local guitarists of all ages. The orchestra is organized and conducted by local performer and teacher Peter Pupping, with musician and teacher William Wilson as assistant conductor.

“We do two sessions a year, and each session has a different theme. This session’s theme is based on The Eagles’ most famous song “Hotel California,” which contains a well-known Flamenco chord progression. Our thought was to blend the Spanish guitar theme with Eagles repertoire and its guitar based sound,” said Pupping.

Songs include Hotel California and Seven Bridges Road by The Eagles, and Hymne-aux Forets and For Salva, traditional Spanish pieces. Other music has been added, including a Latin piece arranged by orchestra member Keith Van Zandt. Many musicians also will perform small group arrangements, duets and solos. A $12 donation per person at the door is suggested.

The Encinitas Guitar Orchestra is one of only a few community guitar orchestras in the country. Amateur guitarists from beginner through advanced level perfect their playing skills, learn new music, and enjoy the camaraderie of playing in an ensemble.  

“The Encinitas Guitar Orchestra is a unique way to improve musicianship,” Pupping said. “For most amateur classical and acoustic guitarists, practicing is a solo pursuit and there aren’t many opportunities to perform. The orchestra gives everyone a chance to improve their skills and show off what they do.”
