Free Performance - Classical Guitarist Peter Fletcher

New York-based classical guitarist Peter Fletcher will grace the library with a performance on Monday, March 11, 2013 at 7:00 P.M.

Mr. Fletcher began the study of guitar at the age of seven and made his formal debut at fifteen. He has studied under many of the great masters; Jose Tomas, David Leisner, David Russell, Oscar Ghiglia and Pepe Romero. He made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2007, and returned in 2008, 2009, and 2010 to a completely sold-out house. He will be performing there again in April, 2013.

Mr. Fletcher has also performed extensively on radio and television and has three recordings available which have received critical acclaim.
