“Guitar Extravaganza” – Thurs., April 29th

by Steve Briody

Be sure not to miss the “Guitar Extravaganza”, which is a salute to guitar legend Tony Mottola. Peter Rogine, John Kelly, and myself will be joining the guitar students of Five Towns for this special night. It was an honor for me to transcribe and arrange some of of Tony Mottola’s greatest recordings for the students. Please come by to see all the outstanding work the students have done with them! I know you will enjoy the exceptional guitar work of Prof. John Kelly and his ensemble as well. The concert will also feature some outstanding vocalists. The evening will be hosted by well-known guitarist (and head of the FTC guitar department) Peter Rogine. We’re looking forward to seeing you there. -Best, SB

THURSDAY EVENING, April 29th….show time is 7:30pm.

Spring Festival of Performances!

If you are on our Constant Contact e-mail announce list, you received this Spring Festival poster already. Thought I would share it on the blog, too. These are the Spring performances, sprung from the work of the Five Towns College faculty and students. Hope you will come support your friends, colleagues, and neighbors. (Some of these shows are FREE, so you can bring lots of friends along and let them see how cool our shows are!) For the rest of the Spring schedule — including comedy and special guests — go: here.
