Concert to help local student study in Italy

A fundraising concert will be held Saturday evening, June 2 to aid NMHU Music Major Daniel Torres, who has been invited to attend a special guitar Master’s Class in Volterra, Italy this summer.

Daniel currently studies guitar with Roberto Capocchi at NMHU. He also studies piano with Linda King and will start voice lessons this fall with Andre Garcia-Nuthmann.

This class, called the Volterra Project, selects only four American students per year.

The concert will feature Daniel Torres, Roberto Capocchi, Andre Garcia-Nuthmann, Billie Mathews and Nicole Robinson. The group will be performing guitar solos, guitar duets, and duets with voice and flute.

The concert will be held on June 2, 2012, at 6:00 p.m. at the First United Presbyterian Church, 1000 Douglas Ave., Across from the main post office.
