Guitar Sundays: Live Guitar Performances
at Portsmouth Public Library & Portsmouth Music and Arts Center
Sundays, 3 PM
This year, the Portsmouth Public Library and PMAC (Portsmouth Music and Arts Center), in association with the Boston Classical Guitar Society, will continue their series of live guitar performances called Guitar Sundays, produced and curated by Mitch Shuldman. These free concerts will be held at 3 PM, one Sunday per month, alternating locations between the Levenson Room at the Portsmouth Public Library and the Haas Family Gallery and Recital Hall at PMAC.
Drawing from a rich selection of guitar talent from both New Hampshire and the greater Boston area, the series of recitals will highlight the versatility and range of the guitar from classical to jazz to acoustic.
