Classical guitarist Michael Partington will visit Langley

Saratoga Orchestra of Whidbey Island presents award-winning classical guitarist Michael Partington in concert at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, May 5 at South Whidbey High School.

The orchestra will welcome Roger Nelson as guest conductor in a program of Debussy, Respighi and will feature Partington in Rodrigo’s “Concierto de Aranjuez” and Leo Brouwer’s “From Yesterday to Penny Lane, A Beatle’s Concerto.”

Partington, one of the most engaging of the new generation of concert players, was praised by Classical Guitar Magazine for his “lyricism, intensity and clear technical command.”

Partington has appeared throughout the U.S., U.K., Canada, Russia and Scandinavia in solo recital, with orchestra and in chamber ensembles. His North American appearances include the first solo guitar recital in Seattle’s Benaroya Hall.

General admission tickets cost $20 adult and $18 senior/military. A limited number of seats in a premium section are available for $50.

Students 18 and under are admitted free, under 14 must be accompanied by a paying adult. Tickets are available at Anchor Books in Clinton, Moonraker Books in Langley and Vino Amoré in Freeland. For more information and online tickets, visit www.sowhidbey.com.
