The GCC Guitar Ensembles perform the music of Celso Machado, 7:30 p.m., Friday, May 3 in the Performing Arts Center.

Brazilian composer Celso Machado visited GCC earlier this semester for a residency, supported by a Visiting Artist Grant from the Maricopa Center for Learning and Instruction. The composer worked closely with the student ensembles on the interpretation, style, and techniques used in his music.

The authentic and informed performance on May 3 will include Frevo, Choro, Samba, Bossa Nova styles featuring guitar duos, quartet, octet, and large ensemble.

This performance is free and open to the public.
