LAVALLETTE – International concert guitarist Michael Anthony Nigro will render exotic melodies and rhythms in a live concert, “Dances and Impressions of Latin America and Beyond,” 6 PM Wednesday, June 15, at the Ocean County Library Upper Shores Branch.
Listeners will conceptually travel the Pampas through evocative Argentine compositions, be whisked to the Llanos for Venezuelan waltzes, reach the Spanish coast for songs of Andalusia, and return to Argentina for José Luis Merlin’s poignant Suite del Recuerdo.
Nigro’s expressive musicianship and engaging narratives have thrilled audiences throughout the United States, Europe, and the Philippines. His five solo and chamber music releases capture the essence of Latin America’s revered classical, traditional, and popular composers.
Registration at www.theoceancountylibrary.org/events is required for this free recital. “Dances and Impressions of Latin America and Beyond” is sponsored by the Friends of the Upper Shores Branch.
