Pettit Sheu Duo Concert at the American Guitar Society

I saw a great performance this evening at the American Guitar Society concert series. The featured performers were Adam Pettit and Connie Sheu of the Pasadena Conservatory of Music, faculty. 

These two put on a fantastic concert that featured music not often heard in the classical guitar duo repertoire. The music was diverse and felt as though the listener were traveling on a journey across the continents in which the music was written. Pieces from Spain, Brazil, and even the good ol' USA colored the listeners ear palette and made for a most joyous evening.

The virtuosity they displayed wasn't just technical (although there was plenty of that), but in their ability to play as one unit. Their musicality was enchanting and really brought character to the composers' intentions. 

It was a wonderful and inspiring concert. It gave me a lot to think about in my own playing and teaching.

Thank you Adam and Connie was a wonderful evening!
