Celebrating 38 years of presenting great music in Moore County through the Classical Concert Series (CCS), the Arts Council of Moore County, Parsec Financial Wealth Management and the Sandhills Community College Fine Arts Department present classical guitarist Pablo Sáinz Villegas on Monday, Oct. 21, at 8 p.m. at the Sunrise Theater, in Southern Pines.
Praised as “the soul of the Spanish guitar,” Pablo Sáinz Villegas has become a worldwide sensation known as this generation’s great guitarist. Acclaimed as the successor of Andrés Segovia, he is known for his passionate, emotive and open-hearted playing, whether he is performing at intimate recital halls, or playing to 85,000 people with beloved tenor Plácido Domingo, who has hailed him as “the master of the guitar.”
Since his debut with the New York Philharmonic, he has played in over 40 countries, and with orchestras including Israel Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic and National Orchestra of Spain.
The two remaining concerts in the Classical Concert Series will feature classical pianist Nathan Lee on March 9, 2020; and an encore performance by Ensemble Mélange on April 6, 2020.
A subscription for all three concerts is available at $90 per person ($75 for Arts Council members), or you can “Pick 2” of the series concerts for $60 per person ($50 for Arts Council members). Tickets to individual concerts are $35 ($30 for Arts Council members), and may be purchased at the Arts Council offices (Campbell House, 482 E. Connecticut Ave., So.
