Music Salon features award-winning guitarist

As part of its ongoing Music Salon series, the Beacon Hill Village has invited award-winning guitarist Sharon Isbin to speak on Zoom Tuesday, March 3 at 5:30 p.m.. The event is free and open to the public.

Acclaimed for her extraordinary lyricism, technique and versatility, the multiple Grammy Award winner was named the 2020 Musical America Worldwide Instrumentalist of the Year, the first guitarist ever to receive the coveted honor in its 59-year history. Soloist with over 200 orchestras, Isbin has performed in the world’s most prominent halls. She has premiered over 80 works written for her by some of the world’s leading composers and directs the guitar departments at the Aspen Music Festival and the Juilliard School. 

The Salon will not include a livestream of a performance. Instead, participants are asked to watch in advance a 90-minute video entitled Troubadour via Prime Video and come prepared to ask questions. 

Registration required online in advance here or by calling Beacon Hill Village at 617-723-9713. Registrants will receive the Zoom invitation information in advance of the program.
