The Studio@620 invites you to an evening of amazing musical performance by guitarist Michael Chapdelaine with special guest Nate Najar on Friday April 25, 2014 at 7:00 PM. During this event, each of these talented gentlemen will play some solo numbers, both classical and otherwise, and then they will play a duet or two together. Don't miss this wonderful opportunity! Admission is only $20 per person, $15 for students and seniors.

Michael Chapdelaine won the world's top competitions in both "fingerstyle" and "classical" guitar, the 1998 National Fingerpicking Champion and the Guitar Foundation of America International Classical Guitar Competition. He is the only person to ever have won both awards!

Prior to winning the Championship, Chapdelaine had also won top honors in four international “classical” guitar competitions, including First Prize in the Guitar Foundation of America Competition. He has been awarded two National Endowment for the Arts Solo Recitalist Fellowships and holds a Master of Music degree from Florida State University. In recent years he has toured 4 continents and been seen around the world on CNN and Headline News.

 His original works, which he has only recently introduced to the public, bring together a broad variety of musical styles from classical to country to blues. "I grew up playing pop music in Navy clubs....I needed to find a way to mix the groove and fun of that music with the discipline and expressive beauty of classical music." “Music is fun, if it's not fun, why bother?”

A limited number of red member tickets will be accepted for this event. Please call 727-895-6620 for reservations or additional information.
