The Greater Cincinnati Guitar Society presents Christopher Wilke

Emmi MacIntyre
7:30 p.m., Friday March 22

  Christopher Wilke, world-renowned performer on the 24-string baroque lute, will present a unique concert dedicated to the final masterworks ever written for the instrument. This is the music that George Washington and Benjamin Franklin would have had on their iPods. In addition to playing the music, Wilke will relate the fascinating tale of the last generation of masters who valiantly struggled against awesome technical difficulties and massive societal changes to create some of the most sublimely beautiful and heartfelt music ever composed. Even today, the music is considered so difficult that many professionals fear to attempt it. An expert in the repertoire, Wilke is one of the few performers willing to confront the challenges of this very special music so that it may finally be heard again.

Where: St. John's Unitarian Universalist Church
