Guitar Plus will be performing in the Curtis Auditorium at the CIT Cork School of Music on Friday next, May the 9th at 8.00pm.

Guitar Plus are a collective of classical guitarists who are senior students of the CIT Cork School of Music. This event promises to be an exciting concert of virtuoso playing by some of Cork’s finest classical guitar players.

As well as a solo and various duet performances there will be a rare opportunity to hear the 12 member Guitar Plus Guitar Orchestra. The ensemble will be conducted by Jerry Creedon.

The programme is a real feast of great music, featuring works by Michael Praetorius, J.S. Bach, Fernando Sor, Peter Warlock, Celso Machado and Jurg Kindle.

One of the highlights is sure to be the solo performance of Argentine Maximo Diego Pujol's beautiful Verde Alma by 18 year old Caoilfhionn Ní Choileáin. Caoilfhionn performed this piece for John Williams during his visit to the CIT Cork School of Music last November and he said to me later that she has that rare thing: "She plays from the heart." Quite an accolade from the world's number 1 player!

The concert is free of charge and begins at 8.00 p.m.
