Bookmark and Share

Guitarist Sharon Isbin joins the Santa Rosa Symphony this Saturday through Monday, playing the Villa-Lobos Guitar Concerto, as part of a program called ‘Dancing Across Time.' The Grammy Award-winning Isbin, who founded and runs the Guitar department at Juilliard, actually started studying the instrument by chance when she was a child – what she really wanted to do was study science and rocketry. The Villa-Lobos' Concerto is the centerpiece of a program that also includes; Kodály's Dances of Galánta, Liszt's Mephisto Waltz and Leonard Bernstein Symphonic Dances from West Side Story.
