Peter Fletcher in Concert!

Sunday, October 15 at 2:00 P.M.

Peter Fletcher is a classical guitarist based in Detroit and New York City. He performs over 100 concerts a year, and his recordings on the Centaur Records and Towerhill Recordings labels have been critically acclaimed.

Peter offers an audience friendly, solo recital featuring repertoire that runs the gamut from the Renaissance Period through the 20th Century.

His current recital program features the Prelude from Cello Suite No. 1 and Lute Suite No. 3 by J. S. Bach, Paganini’s exciting and ever popular Caprice No. 24, the fiendishly difficult Five Bagatelles by British composer William Walton, and the great Spanish masterwork Cordoba by Isaac Albeniz. Peter will also perform some of his transcriptions from his Satie album, released on Centaur Records, CRC 2731, and works by Dowland, Llobet and Segovia.

Peter’s recital earlier this year, at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York, was extremely well received, and on May 6th, 2018, he will perform a solo recital on the Cathedral Cultural Series, at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit, MI.

His interests outside of music include reading, house decorating, gardening and fountain pens. We invite you to visit www.peterfletcher.com for more information.
