Acclaimed for her extraordinary lyricism, technique, and versatility, Grammy Award-winner Sharon Isbin has been hailed as "the pre-eminent guitarist of our time" by Boston Magazine. She received the 2001 Grammy for Best Instrumentalist Soloist Performance, and has since joined with the New York Philharmonic to record three guitar concerti. Scheduled for release in January, her latest CD makes history as the New York Philharmonic's first-ever recording with guitar. Ms. Isbin's catalogue of over 20 recordings-from Baroque and Spanish/Latin to crossover and jazz-fusion-reflects remarkable prowess and talent. She received a B.A. from Yale University and a Master of Music from the Yale School of Music. Ms. Isbin will speak about her experience as world-renowned classical guitarist and performer, accompanying her talk with musical excerpts. The cost of this event is $15 per person, which includes a copy of Ms. Isbin's newly-released CD. Check-in for the concert will be in the Lobby prior to the concert, cash only please.
