TONIGHT! 8 String Classical Guitarist Paul Galbraith

The recital will include works by Bach and Mozart. 

Galbraith’s unique playing position was first revealed at the Edinburgh Festival in 1989. His guitar is supported by a metal endpin, similar to that of a cello, which rests on a wooden resonance box. The instrument has two extra strings, one high, one low. Both the guitar’s extraordinary design and Galbraith’s playing style are considered groundbreaking development in the history of the instrument, increasing its range to an unprecedented extent.

Born in Scotland and residing in Switzerland, Galbraith has lived in Malawi, Greece, London, and Brazil, where he was a founding member of the Brazilian Guitar Quartet. He will be a Visiting Scholar at Columbus State University in Georgia at the Schwob School of Music this fall. Read more here.

Our newest idea is for the Bishops Lounge. There are two display cases to the right, one will be used to display student art and the other is to highlight examples of how different organizations have been "#BeSouthwestern" and so if you have anything representing that idea, send them to me, whether it's a picture or a trophy that would be greatly appreciated!
