Guitar students of Song in My Heart Studio performed solo and ensemble pieces at Bethania Lutheran Church in Solvang as part of their Grand Finale Recital. Students from the Santa Ynez Valley, Goleta and Santa Barbara demonstrated their skills in clarity of sound, guitar technique and performance etiquette. Every student played in one or multiple ensemble groups and also presented a solo performance at the June 4 event.
The solo portion began with Valley resident Colin Janes playing “Maria Luisa-Mazurka” by Sagreas followed by “Romance d’Amour.” The ensemble portion of the program included a trio with two guitars and castanets playing “Gerudo Valley.” Three different guitar ensembles followed the trio. The program ended with the guitar orchestra performing for the audience of family and friends.
