Michael Anthony Nigro, the classical guitarist who has captivated live audiences in more than 26 states, makes his stop in Coral Gables on Friday, Feb. 15. He will be performing, beginning at 7 p.m., at St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church, 110 Phoenetia Ave. in Coral Gables.
Acclaimed for his expressive playing and well-developed technique, Nigro provides a first rate concert experience brimming with musicality and engaging commentary. His current program, “Journey Through Spain and Latin America,” has brought much critical acclaim. The program features compositions by Antonio Lauro (Venezuela), Isaac Albéniz (Spain), Jose Luis Merlin and Jorge Cardoso (Argentina).
“Nigro is an excellent guitarist, drawing a multitude of tone colors from his instrument and displaying great technical dexterity. He has a wide dynamic range, a very pretty sound, and an ability to vary his articulation for expressive purposes,” said Jim Ruggirello, Long Beach Gazette.
“His program was fresh, passionate, and wonderfully executed. For several of us, Michael Nigro’s salon recital was truly one of the most enjoyable concerts in recent memory,” said Mark Bisesi, Bloomington Classical Guitar Society.
Michael’s discography includes three CD’s: Homage to Piazzolla, Guitar Sudamericana, and A Journey Through Latin America. All CD’s will be available for purchase and signing following the concerts.
