Master guitarists perform for student guitarists

Hosted by Arizona Arts in Schools’ Brad Richter, the Lead Guitar Virtual Showcase featured three guitar heroes, Alex de Grassi, Sergio Vallín and Sergio Assad, who gave advice, told stories and played their guitars for student guitarists around the world. Students submitted their own guitar playing for a very special virtual group performance of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” and Carlos Santana’s “Oye Como Va.” You can watch the five-minute highlight video.

Due to an overwhelming amount of video submissions, a second showcase is scheduled with Zach Filkins of OneRepublic on May 23. Group songs for that showcase will include OneRepublic’s smash hit, “Counting Stars.” Guitarists are invited to submit videos for this showcase.

Brad Richter appeared on the NPR classical music program, “Performance Today” on May 5. Richter and cellist Viktor Uzur, in their last recorded concert, performed Brad’s piece, “Bitter the Laughter, Sweet the Tears.” The performance can be found at the 19-minute mark of Hour One.
