Denver Valley Music Fest presents classical guitarist
David Temple, classical guitarist and composer, returns to the Denver area in a concert at The Old School Baptist Church on Sunday, July 13 at 2 p.m.
The concert is one of three scheduled this summer as part of the Denver Valley Music Festival, sponsored by The Denver Vega Preservation Committee and presented by The Roxbury Arts Group.
The Old School Baptist Church is an acoustically pure venue in a setting unparalleled in the region for its bucolic beauty. It provides an intimate experience for both performer and audience.
Temple has performed throughout the country as a soloist, accompanist and ensemble player. He is dedicated to presenting guitar performances that are full of color and variety, and to making the concert experience enjoyable. “David is one of those rare musicians of any genre that is able to play directly what is coming from his head, without barrier between mind, finger and fretboard.” Says Noah Fleisher of the Taconic Weekend.
His concerts have included the Festival of Arts at Mohonk, the Classical Music series in Ocala, Florida, the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society and the Tower Music series in Poughkeepsie. He has given recitals at the University of the Arts and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
A graduate of the music school at Eastern Michigan University, Temple also studied at the San Francisco Conservatory, and participated in master classes through the Philadelphia Classical
He has produced three recordings, which include an eclectic selection from the repertoire, as well as original arrangements and compositions.
Tickets to the concert are $12. For reservations and information call The Roxbury Arts Group 607 326-7908.
