Irving Park Lutheran Church, 4100 N. Harding
The Irving Park Fine Arts Committee is pleased to present The Avanti Guitar Trio
Rooted in the classical guitar tradition, the Avanti Guitar Trio performs an eclectic variety of music, including works from the Renaissance through Romantic eras, music from Spain and Latin America and arrangements of folk and pop tunes.
They also perform contemporary compositions that make use of improvisation, effects pedals and electronics. The trio is comprised of Thomas Clippert, Julie Goldberg and Jeffrey Silva.
Based in Chicago, AGT has performed in traditional and non-traditional concert venues throughout the Midwest. Their performances in concert halls, clubs, libraries, churches, historic homes, and colleges have received rave reviews. Passionate about new music, Avanti Guitar Trio collaborated with members of the Chicago Composers Consortium and premiered works written for and dedicated to the AGT, including compositions by Julia Miller, Martha Carlson-Horst, Tiffany Sevilla, and Timothy Edwards.
Avanti Trio members graduated from some of the country’s most prestigious conservatories and universities. Each has performed as a soloist throughout the country and all are currently teaching at Chicago area universities.
The concert will be held at Irving Park Lutheran Church, 4100 N. Harding Ave., Chicago. A reception with the artists follows the concert. Admission is free, but free-will donations will be accepted.
