The Professional Concert Series continues on April 8

featuring

José Manuel Dapena





Critics have noted José Manuel Dapena as “a talented guitarist and an artistic proponent of the Spanish culture,” “a great Spanish master of the guitar,” and “a player with stirring musicality. No doubt this 2008 Carnegie Hall debut was a success.” He studied with David Russell in Spain who had a great influence on his conception of the instrument and who wrote that José Manuel “is an excellent player with a strong warm tone [and] agile technique [who] is able to bring magic to musical phrases.” With grant support from the government of Spain, José Manuel will bring our season to an exciting Iberian-style close on 8 April 2017!
