Boston Classical Guitar Society presents Thatcher Harrison

SATURDAY, APRIL 233:00—4:00 PM Multipurpose Room 138Tufts Library46 Broad Street, Weymouth, MA, 02188

Join the Boston Classical Guitar Society for a special performance by guitarist and composer, Thatcher Harrison. As a composer, Thatcher Harrison tries to expand the boundaries of classical guitar repertoire through what he calls “classical fusion”composition: pieces based in classical composition and performance techniques, but with influences from other genres such as jazz music, rock music, fingerstyle guitar music, blues music, pop music, film score music, and world music. As a guitarist, Thatcher Harrison chooses to perform unconventional and daring programs, oftentimes consisting primarily of his own compositions. Having won 20 competition prizes, Thatcher Harrison is currently working to establish his career as an international concert artist, with his 2021-2022 season including concerts for Boston Classical Guitar Society, Pleven Guitar Festival, The 21st Century Guitar Conference, Twents Gitaarfestival, Boston Guitarfest, and Domaine Forget International Music Festival. Thatcher Harrison is currently studying for his Bachelor of Music degree in Classical Guitar Performance at New England Conservatory with Eliot Fisk and Jérôme Mouffe.
