The UNLV Performing Arts Center is proud to welcome guitarist Jason Vieaux at 7:30 p.m Friday, April 12, in the Rando-Grillot Recital Hall of the Beam Music Center. Among his extensive discography is the 2015 Grammy Award-winning album for Best Classical Instrumental Solo, Play, from which the track “Zapateado” was also chosen as one of NPR’s “50 Favorite Songs of 2014 (So Far)”. The concert is sponsored Dr. Mitchell and Pearl Forman.
Vieaux has earned a reputation for putting his expressiveness and virtuosity at the service of a remarkably wide range of music, and his schedule of performing, teaching, and studio recording commitments is distinguished throughout the U.S. and abroad. His solo recitals have been a feature at every major guitar series in North America and at many of the important guitar festivals in Asia, Australia, Europe, and Mexico.
