Lawrence Public Library Books Another Excellent Performance


Peter Fletcher is trained in classical guitar.  Beginning at age seven, he studied under professional instructors and in Master Classes while winning awards along the way. He has played all over the United States in impressive venues including Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall.  Last night we heard him play for an hour and half at the Lawrence Public Library.

Mr. Fletcher's passion for his music was evident in his professional presentation. With fingers seeming to dance over the strings of his guitar, he created intonations sometimes subtle sometimes strong, but always clear and beautiful. My favorite was Koyunbaba, Op.19, only because it is on the CD we purchased and I have listened to it several more times. All the music was breathtaking. Click here for a YouTube presentation of Preludio by Manuel Ponce, one of the songs Mr. Fletcher played last night.

My only disappointment was that more people did not take advantage of this opportunity to hear Mr. Fletcher perform. We are continually amazed at the talent the Lawrence Public Library brings to the community, no admission charged. They have several more excellent programs in the next few weeks.

Linda, my intentions are good but I seem to always have something else going on. I'll check the dates you've provided for upcoming events and hope to see you there! You're bringing the treats, right?

Kidding aside, we are sooo spoiled in this little community of ours. I'd love to have enough time to enjoy more events such as those offered for free by our library. Thanks for the reminder!
