At 4 p.m. on Jan. 13 noted guitarist Paul Grove will present a recital at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist as part of its Second Sunday Concerts.
Known for his style, flair and sparkle, Grove is a member of the Gonzaga University faculty and colleague of St. John’s organist-choirmaster Janet Ahrend. Grove is a frequent performer, most recently including San Francisco, Whitman College and Yakima. He has given two previous recitals at the cathedral. Of his many recordings, his recent CD, “Nuages”, a collection of Impressionist works. It was created as part of a commission by the MAC in coordination with their Impressionism exhibit and was recorded at the Fox Theater in Spokane, according to a press release.
Grove’s concert on Jan. 13 will feature Spanish, Brazilian, and Mexican music. He will likely use a guitar built in Desmet by a Native American builder named Michael Elwell.
Recordings produced by Dr. Grove are available in St. John’s Books & Gifts in the Cathedral Welcome Center.
There is a $5 donation for the recital, collected at the door.
