Classical Music at its Finest

Guitar Quartet February 20, 2015

In a breathtaking performance, the Georgia Guitar Quartet moved the audience through pieces that showcased their unique ability to blend a variety of musical genres together. Talented artists Kyle Dawkins, Brian Smith, Phil Snyder, and Jason Solomon opened the evening with Dawkins’ composition “Flight,” a dramatic piece that depicted an airplane navigating the skies. Intricate arrangements soothed the audience while lively ones kept them on the edge of their seats as the quartet built suspense with their instruments through rhythmic tapping and elaborate picking. The concert concluded with a rendering of an exciting Irish reel, “The Road to Lisdoonvarna,” arranged by Dawkins.

After the concert, the quartet greeted guests and students, signed programs, and offered helpful advice to avid musicians.
