We can feel the love. 450 people came out Saturday night to hear our John E. Marlow Guitar Series March 15 performance.

We heard a pre-concert performance by our Beatty Music Scholarship Competition Grand Prize winner, Infinity Willner. She played a wonderful Joropo by Merlin.

Then we sat back to enjoy the sensitive and evocative music of our featured performer, Rupert Boyd (Australia), making his triumphant return to the Marlow Guitar Series stage. He played Dowland, Piazzola , JS Bach, Fernando Sor and Granados and some evocative, contemporary music of Peter Schulthorpe, all of it with great musicality and charm.

This performance was one of the stops on Rupert Boyd’s US tour, organized in cooperation with the International Conservatory of Music (ICM) and the Embassy of Australia. ICM’s Project Manager, Bill Herrmann, organized the tour, sending Mr. Boyd to perform in New York City, NY, Buffalo, NY, Washington, DC, Chicago, IL, Honolulu, HI, San Francisco, CA Flagstaff, AZ, Phoenix, AZ, and Muncie, IN!

We would like to express our thanks to the Embassy of Australia for their sponsorship of the splendid “Meet-the-Artist” Reception this past Saturday night. The weatherman cooperated by delivering a balmy 60 degree day and a full moon! All and all, we would have to call the entire evening, super incredible.
