Peter Aglinskas, guitarist and Harper Music Department faculty member, returns to the Harper Pavilion stage on Thursday, September 9th at 7:30 PM to perform a solo outdoor concert featuring original fingerstyle guitar arrangements from his CDs Sepia Session and South Shore Soul, as well as sizzling renditions of 70s rock classics like Deep Purple’s “Highway Star” and “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking” by the Rolling Stones, along with some gems from his classical guitar repertoire. Building on the legacy of guitarists like Laurindo Almeida and Charlie Byrd, who blended the sounds of classical Spanish guitar with the popular music idioms of their time, Peter infuses his music with elements from the contemporary worlds of jazz, soul, and rock, with technique firmly rooted in the classical music tradition. Recipient of the Chicago Cultural Department’s “Artists International” Award, Peter Aglinskas has been delighting audiences for more than four decades with his signature blend of popular, classical, and world music influences.
This event is free and open to the public. Lawn chairs or blankets are recommended.
