In partnership with the San Diego Guitar Festival we present a night of classic string music and modern craft beers provided by Stone Brewing, Karl Strauss Brewing and Culture Brewing Co.
Recognized as one of the world’s foremost lutenists, Paul O’Dette has helped define the technical and stylistic standards to which twenty-first century performers of early music aspire. With over 100 recordings and a GRAMMY to his name, his impeccable technique and ability to imitate the human voice makes his performance of early music truly a creative endeavor.
Joining Paul on stage for the second half of the program is Thomas Viloteau, one of the most gifted classical guitarists of the younger generation. Thomas has studied and performed across the globe and is now finishing his doctorate at the Eastman School of Music. In 2015 he was the first guitarist to win the Arthur W. Foote Award from the Harvard Musical Association in Boston, a prize given each year to the best musician in the top music schools and conservatories in the United States.
