Music at St. Paul’s featuring the Columbia Guitar Duo

Tuesday, March 24th 2015

The Columbia Guitar Duo (Kevin Choi, CC ’17 & Javier Llaca, CC ’16) was established in 2014 and is currently coached by maestros Arthur Kampela and Marco Cappelli. They have recently been invited to perform at Harvard University, Carnegie Hall, and WKCR New York. Incorporating a wide range of works in their programs, their goal is to further the presence of the classical guitar in modern concert settings.

 The duo’s performance, A Five-Course Meal: From Lute Music in the Renaissance to Tango in the 21st Century, served up a delicious assortment of musical sustenance. Music at St. Paul’s was proud to host such talented, professional members of the Columbia community.
