Concert

Gary Kessler, classical guitarist, in concert, 3pm, Sunday, April 29, at St. Philip’s Episcopal, New Hope.
 
Gary Kessler is a graduate of the Mannes School of Music where he majored in classical guitar and was a founding member of Trio Sonata, a classical chamber group that gave performances in the Metropolitan New York area as well as extensive tours throughout the United States. Gary devoted a good deal of his time to making his own transcriptions of classical music while also seeking the work or modern composers. Trio Sonata recorded three albums which were very well received. Eventually Gary retired from the trio so he could devote more time to his growing family. He accepted a teaching position where he taught science and shop to grammar school students though he never abandoned his love of playing guitar. More recently, Gary has creatively branched out to wood turning producing many lovely bowls some made with wood from Bucks County. Gary is pleased to be returning to active guitar performance.
         
The concert is open to all with a free will donation at the door for the musicians and the outreach of St Philip’s Church.
 
The Concert Series will continue on May 20th with Harpist Gennaro Poraro.
 
The vision of the program is to create space where music can create a community which is open to all regardless of income. “New Hope is a community known for the arts and in a small way, we hope to build community through the arts” says The Very Reverend Michael Ruk.
