There are at least eight composers on the program, promising an exciting evening rich with the sounds of Spanish and Latin American composers’ works for guitar.

La Sierra University’s adjunct guitar Professor Lee Zimmer will bring these works to life in a recital at LSU’s Hole Memorial Auditorium, March 7, at 7 p.m. The program begins with Isaac Albeniz’s “Leyenda,” ranges to Joaquin Turina’s “Fandanguillo” plus two other Turina pieces just before intermission, and concludes with “Etudes” by Heitor Villa-Lobos.

Zimmer’s background includes master class performances with Manuel Barrueco, Sharon Isben, David Russell, Michael Newman and Jorge Morel. He also engaged in classical studies with Maestro Seiko Sesoko. Zimmer has arranged music for one, two and four guitars. His two-guitar arrangement of “Le Tombeau de Couperin,” by Maurice Ravel, is featured on a recording he made with guitarist Eric Brenton of the acclaimed guitar ensemble, Duo Sesoko. Zimmer performs regularly and is an instructor at the Fender Center for the Performing Arts in Corona, Calif.

Tickets for the March 7 recital are $10 general admission; $5 seniors/LSU faculty, staff, students; $20 family admission; children age 12 and under free. Call 951-785-2036 for additional information.
