Great Guitar Gathering with Guest Artist Jason Vieaux
Douglas Anderson School of the Arts returns to present the Great Guitar Gathering, a fund-raising concert to benefit the Guitar Department of the school.
The event not only showcases the students of the Douglas Anderson Guitar Orchestra, but has presented many of the most respected classical, finger-style and jazz guitar artists.
Guest guiarist Jason Vieaux won the Grammy for Best Classical Instrumental Solo for his album Play. His latest release, Dance, with the Escher Quartet, includes works by Boccherini, Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Aaron Jay Kernis. His premiere recording of Jonathan Leshnoff’s “Guitar Concerto” with the Nashville Symphony was also released in 2019.
Vieaux is the first classical musician to be featured on NPR’s popular Tiny Desk series, where they described him as “perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation.”
