Help Keep Skaneateles Lake Clean — a Lecture by Agricultural and Natural Resources Alumna Ellen Folts

 

At the Skaneateles Library

Earlier this winter the library began its third season collaborating with the Great Lakes Guitar Society to host performances by premier classic guitar musicians. The series showcases some of the top talent from across the country, including award-winning performers who live right here in Central New York. It also offers opportunities for performers at all levels of their careers, from young players to doctoral students to seasoned instructors from some of the best collegiate guitar programs.

What started as a single performance at the Skaneateles Library several years ago has evolved into a full series of performances funded in part by a New York State grant that was originally facilitated with help from Senator John DeFrancisco. And this series continues to grow!

On Saturday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m., Austin Wahl of Minneapolis, Minnesota will perform. Wahl began studying classical guitar at age five and has earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees, as well as a performer’s certificate, at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, where he is currently a doctoral student. Wahl has won top prizes in numerous guitar competitions and performed in masterclasses for guitarists such as David Russell, Manuel Barrueco, Sharon Isbin, Eliot Fisk, Lorenzo Micheli, Matteo Mela, Roland Dyens and Raphaella Smits.
