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.”

92Y presents Paco Peña

Esencias: The Music of Flamenco — Paco Peña, flamenco guitar with Special Guests

Only NYC Appearance of the Season
 Sat, Oct 21, 2017, 8 pm

Legendary flamenco guitarist and artist Paco Peña earned a Kennedy Center Gold Medal in the Arts for his lifelong commitment to the mastery and innovation of the art of flamenco. The New York Times went on to say, “(Peña) combines rapid-fire flourishes with a colorist’s sense of shading; this listener cannot recall hearing any guitarist with a more assured mastery of his instrument.” In his only NYC appearance of the season, Peña and his brilliant special guests will highlight the power of the guitar alone to reveal the essence of this passionate art form. With 92Y’s rich history of presenting the greatest masters of the guitar, we are thrilled to be welcoming back a maestro. Don’t miss this special event.
