Guitarist and composer to perform at Emerson Resort

Mt. Tremper — The Phoenix Restaurant will present classical guitarist and composer David Temple for a concert and champagne reception in the Great Room at the Emerson Resort and Spa on Sunday, June 29.
Temple’s performance will be the first in a series of summer performances planned at the Mt. Tremper complex and is open to both overnight guests and local residents. The widely revered performer and recording artist has played throughout the country as a soloist, accompanist and ensemble player and is well-known for presenting guitar performances full of color and variety.
In announcing Temple’s performance, Emerson General Manager Ron Van Warmer noted he is excited to present local artists to local audiences.
“We have an incredible facility in our Great Room and all of us have been looking for ways to enable both our overnight guests and day use visitors to enjoy these beautiful surroundings.” Van Warmer went on to note that Temple creates a total concert experience that widely varying audiences enjoy. “Whether people have heard classical guitar before or whether this is their first concert, we think they’re going to love it.”
Tom Turck, manager of the Phoenix Restaurant agreed and noted that events in the Great Room, which features a crystal chandelier that once hung in the historic Breakers Hotel, are always well-received. “Most of the area venues don’t get geared up until July 4th weekend. We thought we’d get a jump on the season,” said Turck.
Temple will perform in the Great Room from 5 – 7 p.m. on June 29 and the $20 concert fee includes the champagne reception. Concertgoers are encouraged to enjoy dinner at the Phoenix Restaurant on concert night. Those who do will have the price of their concert ticket deducted from the cost of their entrée. Advance reservations are suggested.
