Prez Sez  2017-18

August 2017

Greetings fellow TGS members. I hope you are having a great summer. We have some exciting news for you about our upcoming season. So far, we have scheduled two concerts.

Our first concert of the season will be the annual TGS Benefit Concert. The TGS Benefit Concert is Sunday, September 17th at 7:00 pm at the Carrboro Century Center. It will feature Randy Reed who will play a wonderful variety of music from the classical guitar repertory (see below). I will be playing some bossa-nova/jazz solos as well as duets with jazz guitarist, Scott Sawyer. This is a new adventure for me to perform jazz standards and I am excited to share it with you. Scott Sawyer will also perform some solos.

Our other concert is the return of classical guitarist, Mak Grgic on Friday, January 26, 2018 at Carrboro Century Center at 8:00 pm. Mak is an award-winning guitarist from Slovenia who performed a wonderful concert for us about three years ago. Both shows

Both shows are free with donations greatly appreciated. I know that many of you are active on Benefit Concert event as well as invite your local friends to the event. This could potentially reach hundreds of people. I invited 92 people (all within 50 miles of Carrboro Century Center) from my personal page. We need your help in getting the word out about our concerts. Also, 2018 marks the 30th anniversary of our non-profit organization. We hope to plan some fun events to commemorate this important event.
We will be announcing more concerts after our benefit concert. And, we will have a Member Meeting sometime in October. Stay tuned. Thanks as always for your interest in TGS and don’t forget to renew your membership.

Randy Reed has been busy editing and practicing the music of Fernando Sor. Here are three studies, which he calls “Three Pensive Studies”. He will open his recital with these studies at the TGS Benefit Concert on September 17th.

I am leaving the rest of this page blank so that each study will appear on its own page.
We hope you enjoy playing them!

Best wishes, Dennis P. Aberle, President
