Guitar Prodigy Performs at Benefit Show in Lancaster
Enjoy the sounds of classical guitar? World-renowned guitarist Ernesto Tamayo will be performing at The Ware Center, Millersville University Lancaster, on November 3. The 7:30 p.m. performance will be part of a benefit show for the artistic season at The Ware Center.
“The goal is to raise funds to help underwrite the 2011-2012 artistic season at The Ware Center,” said Harvey Owen, director. More than 160 different performances have already been scheduled for the upcoming season.
Born in Havana, Cuba, Tamayo was a musical prodigy who began studying guitar at the age of five. His first public performance and TV appearance came a few years later at nine. He later received a full scholarship to The Peabody Conservatory with renowned guitarist Manuel Barrueco.
Tamayo stays busy on the road, performing in 98 concerts last year alone. He has toured extensively throughout North and South America, Asia and Europe. He has also appeared in Carnegie Hall in a sold-out performance, in addition to just completing his sixth CD.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online, at www.muticketsonline.com, by calling the Ticket Office at 717-872-3811 or in person at the front desk at The Ware Center, Millersville University Lancaster.
