Guitar Concert at The Boquete Library


Recommended Posts

Two virtuosos of the guitar at Boquete Library

Make a space in your calendar because this Saturday, July 7th the 
library will be host of a unique presentation from the 16th International Guitar Festival of Panama. This Festival is organized by the talented Panamanian musician Emiliano Pardo Tristán, who delighted our ears at the last concert. 

This time we will be visited by two young virtuosos, participants of the festival: Marco Corrales from Costa Rica and Jesús Serrano from Mexico. The first of our guests was the winner of the International Guitar Contest of Panama and since 2016 he started recording his album: “A century of Costa Rican Guitar” that mixes eleven songs and immortalizes the musical culture of Costa Rica. The second, winner of around 50 awards in America and Europe, is known as “the devil of the guitar” and stands out for his refined presentations full of energy.

Prepare yourself for a concert of vibrant melodies through the guitar: a classical instrument that reinvents itself day by day. Enjoy this musical journey with international quality musicians.

Tickets available in Mail Boxes Etc & Boquete Library.
Date:  Sunday 07th July
Time: 5:00 p.m.
Donation:  B/.15.00

Marcelyn and I attended this concert at Biblioteca de Boquete. It was a full audience, and one appreciative of the high quality musicians who had traveled to Boquete to perform for us. We say this each time we post a review of one of these events, but Elsa Castillo deserves a huge amount of recognition and praise for both finding and bringing such talent to Boquete, and also for administering all of these events, including the logistics necessary to make them happen. Thank you Elsa!

This guitar concert included two musicians, Marco Corrales (from Costa Rica) and Jesús Serrano (from Mexico). Both gentlemen had come to Panama as part of an annual guitar competition and public performances that were held in June and early July. Click Here to see the posting about related public performances by these and other musicians in early June.

The quality of musicians that we are fortunate to see here at the Boquete Library is astounding.  I am never disappointed.  Thank you to Elsa, the library staff, the patrons who support these programs and the donors who make them possible.
