SWMBO and I joined a crowd of people at the Prescott Valley Library Auditorium this afternoon for an hour-long classical guitar concert.

The performer was Terrence Shrader, who is the Music Director at the Orme School of Arizona in nearby Mayer.

The Gary, Indiana native and graduate of Indiana University played selections from Bach, and Cuban and Argentine composers among others.

As you can see in the foreground of this picture there was a lot of grey hair in the audience, including ours.

Nevertheless the listeners were attentive and responsive.

Shrader did hit a few clinkers and joked at the end of the concert "maybe I'll come back sometime and play some of the notes I missed today."

But his performance was appreciated by the crowd.

Nice afternoon.


  1. As I guy who can play about 6 chords, I appreciate anybody who can make through a song, even with clinkers from time to time.

  2. I saw that advertised when I was at the library picking up books this week and thought I would enjoy it. Of course, I was painting instead . . . and forgot all about it. We are being unshaven bums today working on house projects. Wouldn't want to be seen in public.

  3. Classic is tough to play on a Guitar.
