Join Medallion Opera House on Friday June 26th at 7:30pm for myths, dances and legends by virtuoso guitarist, Aaron Larget-Caplan.
On Friday June 26th at 7:30 pm, myths, dances and legends come to Gorham when virtuoso guitarist, Aaron Larget-Caplan, returns to Medallion Opera House, Gorham Town Hall, 20 Park Street, Gorham with Chicago-based dancer and choreographer, Ayako Kato, for a passionate and exciting program titled Of Heaven & Earth, exploring music and movement in music by J.S. Bach, Gershwin, Schubert and contemporary American and Japanese composers Ken Ueno and Keigo Fujii.
This one night-only performance is sponsored in part by the Tassey Group and Top Notch Inn and is also a celebration of Larget-Caplan’s latest solo CD release The Legend of Hagoromo on the UK label Stone Records. The CD features virtuoso guitar music on a Japanese theme by composers from Japan and the USA. Aaron is the first American artist and guitarist featured on the label. Aaron & Ayako will be performing the program at the International Festival of Arts & Ideas in Connecticut prior to Gorham’s concert so don’t miss out!
Fresh from a five-country tour in Europe and Russia, Aaron is thrilled to be returning to the Medallion Opera House, where he last performed in 2011. “The audience and acoustic were so memorable, that when Ayako and I decided to tour the program, it was on the top of my list! Ayako is an award-winning dancer and choreographer and brings a special Far East aesthetic and experience to her work, which compliments both the spiritual elements of Bach and the Eastern elements of contemporary music. I think people will be very impressed with the collaboration. This will also be Ayako’s first performance in New Hampshire so I am very excited to be able to present her to the North Country!”
