The OFJCC Arts and Culture Department, in partnership with San Jose Jazz Festival, presents International Guitar Night (IGN), which brings together the world’s foremost acoustic guitarists to perform their latest original compositions and exchange musical ideas in a public concert setting.
IGN founder Brian Gore invites a new cast of guitar luminaries to join him for special evenings of solos, duets and quartets that highlight the virtuosity and diversity within the world of acoustic guitar.
For this, IGN’s 18th year of touring, Germany’s Gypsy Jazz legend Lulo Reinhardt will return as the show’s host. He will be joined by Calum Graham, the young Canadian contemporary sensation; Marek Pasieczny, Poland’s innovative classical composer/performer; and award-winning American guitarist Michael Chapdelaine.
Lulo has built on grand-uncle Django Reinhardt’s repertoire by introducing Latin rhythms. Calum has a two-handed style that has attracted millions of YouTube viewers. Marek has performed and written for a variety of orchestras around the world, and Michael has won both the Guitar Foundation of America Classical Guitar Competition and the National Fingerstyle Championship for steel string guitar.
