Old World, New World

Eli Schille-Hudson brings out the extreme stylistic versatility of the classical guitar in two exciting programs in early February, encompassing everything from the high baroque to stylized flamenco and new music!

Schille-Hudson juxtaposes war horses of the European classical canon (Bach Cello Suite #1, and Manuel de Falla’s Suite Popular Española with Grant Donnellan, violin) with lesser-known gems from Latin America (studies by Brazilian Heitor Villa-Lobos and Cuban Leo Brouwer) and North America (Mike Reardon’s Vesta and Pulse #1). The program concludes with music homegrown right here in Bellingham: Schille-Hudson’s own Introduction & Samba, and David Feingold’s evening portrait of our city, Boardwalk.

Full-length Night Beat is on Friday, February 3, 7:30pm, at First Congregational Church, 2401 Cornwall Ave., Bellingham, WA 98225! No ticket purchase required; we suggest a $20 donation. Students are always free!
