It’s Not Too Late!

For the small gathering at the Robin Hixon Theater on March 14th, it was an opportunity to enjoy a very intimate concert by the TCGS Founding Fathers and Friends and even to interact with the performers. For those not there, it was a missed opportunity to hear some of the region’s finest guitarists perform an absorbing and diverse concert.

TCGS Founding Fathers and Friends refers to Sam Dorsey, Timothy Olbrych, and John Boyles, who performed thirty years ago at the first concert sponsored by TCGS, and Cliff Morris, a guitarist who spent most of his stellar career as a professional musician in New York. The four musicians each played a solo set, ranging from the traditional Barrios’ La Catedral and Pachelbel’s Canon in D to the exceptional Thelonius Monk’s Round Midnight and Stephen Sondheim’s electronically amplified Send in the Clowns.

For the audience and the musicians, one of the highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the quartet performing works in the Tidewater Guitar Orchestra’s repertoire. Hearing familiar works in a new way, with only one musician on each part, gave a new appreciation for the music. This concert will be repeated on March 27th at the Williamsburg Regional Library. Don’t miss it!
