Evergreen Arts & Humanities Series Presents Multi-Instrumentalist Todd Green
The Evergreen Arts and Humanities Series at Washington State Community College is pleased to bring nationally performing solo artist and multi-instrumentalist Todd Green to the WSCC Graham Auditorium stage on Saturday October, 19th.
Todd Green first began studying the guitar at age ten and has been professionally composing and performing his own music since the age of fifteen. Green went on to study music composition and arrangement at Berklee College of Music, in Boston, Massachusetts, and at the same time was privately working with Mick Goodrich, jazz guitar legend at New England Conservatory of Music, Grammy Award winning guitarist Pat Metheny, and international recording star George Benson. Green now performs nationally as a multi-instrumental solo artist in the college and fine arts markets. Along with his concerts, Green conducts college master classes and interactive school clinics and assemblies. His columns on improvisation have been published in Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine.
During the concert, Green will play and discuss 40+ instruments from across the world. Green's music is inspired by many different cultures in the Middle East, Central Asia, Far East and South America. His custom-built electronic system allows him to layer instruments as he performs, which in effect turns him into a high-tech one-man-band of World Music. As Green takes his audience on a fascinating tour of many countries and their diverse styles of music, he intersperses his playing with entertaining and informative explanations of the music and the instruments.
According to Green, his goal is to inspire his audience to reach out beyond their current musical horizons and embrace a new instrument, a new rhythm or maybe a different melody in a hitherto unknown scale. Regardless of your musical interests and background, Todd Green's concert is a uniquely gratifying experience with elements of both the familiar and the unfamiliar, and promises to broaden everyone's musical horizons in an unforgettable way. Green takes the stage with his many instruments at 7:30 p.m, and the concert is free and open to the public. Seat pass reservations for this free concert can be made by contacting Tanya Wilder at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 740-374-8716.
