Guitarist and IUN faculty member Peter Aglinskas returns to MCPL to perform a solo concert featuring original fingerstyle guitar arrangements from his CDs Sepia Session and South Shore Soul, as well as his arrangements of 70s rock classics. 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, PeterAglinskas has been delighting audiences for more than three decades with his signature blend of popular, classical, and world music influences.
