Classical guitar takes center stage in the exquisite acoustics of First Methodist. Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez, with its famous 2nd movement, has become synonymous with soulful Spanish music. A playful symphony by Prokofiev and a youthful masterpiece from Beethoven frame this delightful evening.
