Greetings Guitar Enthusiasts
Thanks to all the hearty guitar lovers who braved the cold last week to attend the Duo Resonances concert. I think we can all agree it was well worth it! Our next concert is scheduled for March 13 and will feature the outstanding young guitarist Chaconne Klaverenga (see the details to the right). We are extremely excited to welcome back this Indiana native to close out our season.
Ms. Chaconne Klaverenga burst onto the concert stage and international guitar competition world at age 14, giving solo concerts to sold-out venues and securing 14 championship titles in the world’s most prestigious International Classical Guitar Competitions in the Junior, Senior, Collegiate and Artist Divisions. Excerpts of her solo concerts and championship final performances have been featured four times on American Public Media’s Performance Today. She has also been featured on National Public Radio’s From the Top with Maestra JoAnn Falletta and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. Her elegant and accomplished performances have won the hearts of audiences throughout the United States. The poetry of her interpretations and graceful yet exciting stage presence proves she plays the guitar the way the rest of us breathe. She has repeatedly been hailed by the press as a significant rising star in the world of classical guitar and one of the most beautiful women on stage.
On April 10, 2013 Ms. Klaverenga performed at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. for the Kennedy Center Conservatory Project. “The Conservatory Project is an initiative of Performing Arts for Everyone's Millennium Stage. The Conservatory Project creates an ongoing showcase for our nation's exceptional young talent and introduces Washington audiences to young musicians destined to have important careers.”
Ms. Klaverenga is currently on scholarship pursuing her Bachelor’s Degree in Classical Guitar Performance at the world renowned Cleveland Institute of Music in Cleveland, Ohio with Jason Vieaux.
