QGQ is recognized for its artistic excellence and for its significant contributions to the expansion of guitar quartet repertoire. Over the past twenty-¬‐five years, the group has established a wide canon of original pieces and ambitious arrangements through collaboration with composers that include Leo Brouwer, Almeida Prado, Egberto Gismonti, Sergio Molina, and Paulo Bellinati. The musicians of Quaternaglia Guitar Quartet use four custom-¬made guitars by renowned Brazilian guitar maker Sergio Abreu.

“Quaternaglia is a state-of-art-¬ensemble; they are melodically and rhythmically vital, virtuosic and exciting, individually beautiful in sound, and capable of enchanting sonorities. The performances are preternaturally exact in their synchronization while still sounding spontaneous.” Soundboard, USA.


GROUP SINGING: Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers

Sunday, 2/23/2020
1:30PM-4:00PM  
Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers (http://bit.ly/WilmNCSacredHarp) presents a traditional Sacred Harp Singing and invite you to join in the music and raise your voice in song! This dynamic form of a cappella social singing dates back to Colonial America, using a modern reprint of the 1844 songbook "The Sacred Harp".

Sacred Harp and related shape-note styles are the oldest continuous singing traditions in the United States. Surviving as a living tradition in parts of the South, notably Georgia and Alabama, Sacred Harp music has been discovered by new generations of singers who have spread the heritage across North America and to Australia and Europe.

The music is loud, vigorous and intense. It is meant to be sung, not just observed. No previous experience is necessary. 1:30 pm: Instruction for beginners, 2:00 - 4 pm: Group Singing, all. Songbooks provided, beginners welcome! Learn more about Sacred Harp singing at fasola.org.

Free and open to the public. Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall.
