The Xavier Music Series welcomes flamenco guitarist Grisha Goryachev this Sunday, February 26 at 2:30 pm in Gallagher Theater.
Grisha Goryachev is renowned for his extraordinary musical sensitivity and technical virtuosity in both classical and flamenco styles. He is one of very few guitarists in the world who is reviving the tradition of solo flamenco guitar in a concert setting that was practiced by legendary flamenco masters such as Ramón Montoya and Sabicas. Grisha exposes audiences to some of the best guitar compositions flamenco has to offer. Instead of merely copying, he creates his own interpretations of these masterpieces, using dynamics and tone colors usually associated with classical music.
Tickets can be purchased online or by calling the box office at 513-745-3939. XU Faculty and Staff receive buy one, get one free tickets when selecting the "XU Fac/Staff" ticket rate. No coupon code required! XU Student tickets are only $5!
