Quite some years ago, I decided, for no particular reason, to write a collection of quartets for classical guitar. With no plan for having them performed, I wrote them thinking, “Maybe someday.” Well, that day is soon approaching.

On Sunday, March 17th, at 3 p.m., at Capital University’s Huntington Hall, the Columbus Guitar Society Members’ Ensemble, under the direction of Waverly Wilkerson, will perform my quartet “Elven Newscast.” The concert will also feature solo and duet performances from many ensemble members (including myself).

As if that’s not enough, on Sunday, March 24th, at 2 p.m. at the Upper Arlington Public Library, Tremont Road. Karl Wohlwend’s student recital performance will feature another of my quartets, “Water Bug Totem,” along with solos and duets from Karl’s students (including myself). Both concerts are open to the public.

With great thanks to Karl and Wave’s enthusiasm, I’m excited to see this come together!
