Los Angeles Guitar Quartet to Perform at UT April 10

KNOXVILLE — The University of Tennessee Cultural Attractions Committee will host the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet at 8 p.m. Monday, April 10, in the University Center Auditorium.

The LAGQ has toured extensively in Europe, Asia and the United States, and were featured at the international arts festivals in Hong Kong, Singapore and Manila.

The Quartet consists of four virtuoso guitar players: John Dearman, member of the guitar faculty at El Camino College and Pasadena City College; William Kanengiser, faculty member at the University of Southern California and one of the few guitarists to win the Concert Artist Guild New York Competition; Scott Tennant, first prize winner in the Tokyo International Competition in 1989; and Andrew York, a published composer whose album was voted “Best Classical Album” by readers of “Guitar Player Magazine.”

Their first Telarc CD, LAGQ-Latin, received a 2003 Grammy nomination.

Tickets for the performances are $5 for students, $20 for faculty and staff and $25 for the general public. Tickets can be purchased through the UT ticket office or Tickets Unlimited at (865) 656-4444 or www.knoxvilletickets.com.
