Celebrate the holiday season with the acclaimed South Bay Guitar Society Duo (Ben Zussman and Jerry Snyder). Many holiday selections and a sing-along will be presented to bring in this joyous season. This event will be held in the Almaden Library's program room.
Hark, what is that beautiful music you're hearing? Well, we're bringing in live music this month at West Valley Branch Library to celebrate the holiday season! If you missed Elizabeth Erickson's lovely harp performance last week, there are still two more great opportunities to join us for some live seasonal music.
Stop by on Saturday, December 10 at 2pm for a performance by the De Anza Circle recorder ensemble. They've prepared some delightful holiday music from around the world. Bring the family! Maybe it will inspire you or your little ones to pick up a recorder of your own to play. We've got books & DVDs to help you learn.
Join us the following week on Saturday, December 17 at 4pm for a Holiday Concert with the South Bay Guitar Society Quartet, made possible by generous support from the Friends of the West Valley Library. These accomplished guitarists will be playing a medley of traditional, classical, and popular holiday selections for all to enjoy. Thinking about adding a guitar now to that holiday wishlist? You can also check out lots of books & DVDs to help you learn how to play your new guitar.
We hope to see you soon at West Valley Branch Library. You're always welcome to stop by if you need a break from the crowded malls, the chores, and that neverending to-do list. Why not kick back and enjoy some amazing music from talented local performers?
If you love classical guitar music as I do, come to this free performance at the Tully Community Branch Library! From the South Bay Guitar Society, Gil Carnal and Arina Burceva, classical guitarists, will dazzle you with their instruments and music talents. The performance will take place at Tully Library this Saturday, May 7 at 2PM. Don't miss out on this wonderful music experience!
Steve will perform a program of original and arranged music from Argentina, Taiwan, the Philippines, and Paraguay. His recent trips to Asia have inspired him to get in touch with his Taiwanese roots and have sparked his love of Filipino song arrangements.
This program is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Edenvale Branch Library.
On the weekend of Feb 12-14, 2011 the South Bay Guitar Society will host the 2009 Guitar Foundation of America International Competition First Prize winner, FLORIAN LAROUSSE.
