Chatham, NJ — On Friday, March 13 at 7:30 p.m. the Concerts on Main series returns at Ogden Memorial Presbyterian Church (286 Main Street, Chatham, NJ) with a free performance by noted guitarist Jordan Dodson.

“One of the top young guitarists of his generation” 
(Performance Today), Jordan is an active soloist and chamber musician based in New York and Philadelphia. He has received prizes in numerous competitions, including the Astral Artists National Auditions, Lillian Fuchs Chamber Music Competition, Indiana International Guitar Competition, and American String Teachers Association Competition.  In 2013 he was a Young Artist in Residence on American Public Media’s Performance Today.

An advocate for contemporary music, Jordan has commissioned and premiered dozens of pieces internationally. He is a performer in several New York City ensembles including Ensemble Moto Perpetuo, Marcel, and Ensemble sans maître. Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Jordan started playing music at a young age. His past teachers include Clare Callahan, Sharon Isbin, David Starobin, and Jason Vieaux. He has received degrees from the Curtis Institute of Music, Manhattan School of Music, and the University of Cincinnati.

Jordan’s varied program in Chatham features selections from Europe and the Americas including J.S. Bach’s Prelude and Fugue, BWV 998, one of the few pieces Bach wrote for lute, and Augustín Barrios’ Julia Florida, a work that highlights the florid and rhapsodic romanticism of this 19th century Paraguayan composer. He also shares an arrangement of Antônio Carlos Jobim’s bossa nova A Felicidade and accessible music by contemporary composers: Roland Dyens’ Libra Sonatine plus selections from Elliot Cole’s Bloom Suite. Dyens, a French musician, is known for works that fuse diverse musical influences, such as jazz, rock, tango, funk; Cole, based in NJ/NYC describes his Bloom Suite as a “perpetual motion machine.” The evening also includes a few Irish surprises in time for St. Patrick’s Day.
