Mid-Hudson Classical Guitar Society Presents: John Lehmann-Haupt, Guitar Sunday, November 15 @ 3:00pm

John Lehmann-Haupt’s childhood exposure to the recordings of guitarist Andrés Segovia alongside those of country, blues, and jazz artists brought him an early understanding of the guitar’s extraordinary expressive range. John’s intensive study of classical technique, harmony, and musical structure gave him the tools to embark on the twin paths of classical interpretation and song arrangement he has dedicated himself to ever since.

Over four decades of concert activity, John has found that his programs appeal to an unusually broad audience, interweaving classical works with his fluently voiced arrangements of popular and traditional songs in a way that delivers both contrast and continuity.

John has written extensively on music and the guitar. He was a staff instructor at New York’s American Institute of Guitar from 1982 until its closing in 2008, and he has served on the Board of Directors of the New York City Classical Guitar Society since 2006.

Admission: $20 at the door
