What You'll Get
The thrill of seeing one’s favorite musicians in concert often alleviates the stress of modern life and the sweaty delirium from contracting Beatlemania. Enjoy an aural antidote with today’s deal: for $22, you get two tickets to see “One World, Two Guitars: The Music of Francesco Buzzurro & Richard Smith,” a Pacific Italian Alliance Notte Italiana event at Faye Spanos Concert Hall on Sunday, October 9, at 3 p.m. (up to a $44 value, including service charges). Doors open at 2 p.m. Seating is first come, first served.
During a matinee performance in a historic concert hall, internationally acclaimed classical guitarist Francesco Buzzurro joins jazz guitarist Richard Smith to showcase the vast array of styles and sounds housed in the hollow of their instruments, plucking through Italian tarantellas, dramatic tango and flamenco numbers, and jazz pieces. The concert celebrates the duo’s upcoming CD, Un Mondo, Due Chitarre, or One World, Two Guitars, which a JazzTimes article anticipates as a union of distinctive talents whose mutual love for the guitar and onstage rounds of patty-cake shines through in a diverse set of songs. On the album, the duo majestically soars through classical melodies as well as covers of rock tunes such as Stevie Wonder’s Isn’t She Lovely? and The Who’s Pinball Wizard. Hosting the event, the Pacific Italian Alliance celebrates Italian culture, fosters society among local Italian-Americans, and secretly plans to build a bridge connecting Italy to the United States.
