Classical guitarist Jason Vieaux returns to Rochester

Tyler Boye
Jason Vieaux was once an aspiring student taking lessons at Hochstein School of Music. He returns on March 21 to perform there as one of the preeminent classical guitarists working today.

NOTE: This performance has been canceled, with hopes to reschedule for a later date. More from The Hochstein School on their cancelations here.

Classical guitarist Jason Vieaux’s career reflects the versatility (and the portability) of his instrument. He’s apt to show up anywhere, from a symphony orchestra concert to NPR’s “Tiny Desk” concert series, from teaching at the venerated Curtis Institute of Music to giving online lessons.

The award-winning Vieaux performs throughout the world, but Rochester played an important part in his early studies. He returns to give a solo recital, “An Evening in Granada,” at the Hochstein Performance Hall on March 21. [He'll also be on the radio program Backstage Pass broadcast live Friday March 20th at 1pm on WXXI Classical 91.5].
