The University of Wyoming Department of Music’s Faculty Recital Series continues Sunday, March 1, with internationally acclaimed Brazilian guitarist Flávio Apro, featuring a program of masterworks in the classical guitar repertoire.
His free public performance will be at 7:30 p.m. in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts concert hall.
Apro is recognized for his work as guitarist, producer, researcher and teacher. He studied at Sao Paolo University and has won first prize at several music competitions. Apro was chosen to perform in Japan at the prestigious Kyoto International Music Students Festival.
He currently splits his time between Brazil, where he is the music director at Maringa University, and Germany, where he serves as director of the Hermann Hauser Guitar Foundation South American subsidiary, a socio-cultural nonprofit institution based in Munich.
Music from his four albums of guitar classics will be featured during his UW performance. He will be joined by UW faculty member Nicole Riner on flute to perform the exotic “L’Aube Enchanteé” by Indian musician Ravi Shankar, which is written to mimic the sounds and styles of Indian classical music.
