Regarded by audiences and colleagues for her beautiful tone and sensitive music-making, classical guitarist Candice Mowbray shares the expressive and communicative qualities of her playing through programs of modern and classic works: from the playful acrobatics in music by French guitar virtuoso Ida Presti to the iconic lyricism of Rossini as transcribed by Johann Kaspar Mertz, listeners enjoy her artful programming and thoughtful interpretations. Her delightful playing once elicited from a celebrated ballerina, “it makes me want to dance,” and guitar virtuoso John Feeley described her as “a beautiful player, so expressive and musical.”
