Event description

Description

The third performance in The Varsity Center’s Classical Guitar Concert Series features Carbondale artist Tim Steis. The series is sponsored by First Southern Bank.

The name ‘classical guitar’ refers not to the music being played – which can be any music from Bach to Rock and Roll and beyond – but to the type of guitar being played.

Steis is not only a phenomenal guitarist known for his technically perfect high speed interpretations of famously difficult pieces, but also for the guitars he now builds and sells. Originally from Frenchtown, Maryland, he lives and works in Carbondale.

Steis earned degrees in performance classical guitar from Florida State University under the world-renowned teacher and guitarist Bruce Holzman and under Julian Gray at the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music. He was a prize winner at the prestigious Troy State Guitar Competition and has been a performer in the Master Classes of Pavel Steidl, Jorge Caballero and others.

Steis will perform on two or more instruments of his own making.

“Tim Steis plays Debussy, Scarlatti, Rodrigo, Sor and More” begins at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 23. Tickets are $12 in advance at thevarsitycenter.eventbrite.com or $14 at the door on the night of the performance. Student tickets are $8; children 10 and younger are admitted free.

Doors and The Varsity Bar open at 7 p.m. The bar features wine, beer, select cocktails, other beverages and snacks.
