Internationally acclaimed classical guitarist John Johns performs compositions by Bach, Frescobaldi, Sor, de Falla, Villa-Lobos and others March 20. Johns’ debut recital was at Carnegie Hall where the New York Times praised him as a “first-rate performer with sure fingers and a firm technique...a sensitive instrumentalist.” Since then, his credits include appearances around the world, on the Westinghouse-ABC television special A Pride of Guitars and on National Public Radio’s Concert Guitar which featured the world’s leading guitarists. Currently Johns resides as chair of the guitar department at the Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University.
