Classical Guitarist Mychal Gendron performs "Guitarra Latina: Music from Puerto Rico, Paraguay, Brazil, and Venezuela" on Saturday, June 17 from 2:00-3:00pm.

Mychal has been active as a performer for over thirty years, appearing solo as well as in both small and large ensembles.

He has toured Brazil as a soloist under the aegis of Partners of the Americas, performing in music festivals and on television in that country. He participated in chamber music recitals at the Fete di Limans in France and has presented solo guitar recitals on concert series throughout the U.S, including all six New England States.

Regionally, Mychal has performed concertos with the Vermont Symphony, the Cape Ann Symphony, the RI Philharmonic Community Orchestra, the Ocean State Chamber Orchestra and the Fall River Symphony.

Local solo and ensemble performances include Blithewold Mansion and Gardens, the Lippit House Museum, the First Baptist Church in America and the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, plus appearances on college concert series at Brown University, University of Rhode Island and Rhode Island College.
Mychal is now presenting a series of six short solo guitar programs, thematic in nature – each program features the music of one historical era or the musical contributions of a particular region of the world.

This free concert is open to the public. No registration required.
