Grammy Award-winning classical guitarist Sharon Isbin joins the New York Chamber Soloists Orchestra at the Mondavi Center for Performing Art's Jackson Hall at UC Davis on Saturday. Isbin will perform Fantasia para un gentilhombre, and Concierto de Aranjuez by the great Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo. As a young girl, Isbin had another ambition before choosing to pursue music. "I was gonna be a rocket scientist," she explained to Beth. "And in fact my father used to say you have to put in an hour on the guitar before you can launch your rockets." Father knew best as Isbin went on to become a world class performer and musical pioneer. She is the only female classical guitarist to have won a Grammy award, something she's done three times.
