Dr. William Yelverton presented a solo classical guitar and lute concert at the University of the South on Monday, Nov. 16, 2015. He reprised several selections from that concert the next day on “Live in Studio C,” a live broadcast from Nashville’s NPR affiliate at 91.1 FM. You may enjoy his radio performance here.
The program for the concert contained music from the Spanish and English Renaissance, a suite by G.F. Handel (originally for harpsichord), Brazilian choros, Spanish Flamenco, and contemporary music from Russia, Brazil and the U.S., including works by Koshkin, Gismonti, and more.
Yelverton is presently serving as visiting professor of guitar at the University of the South while on sabbatical from MTSU. He has performed throughout the U.S. and in a dozen foreign countries. He is a prize winner in the Guitar Foundation of America International Competition, and received his doctorate in guitar performance from Florida State University. Yelverton's baroque music CD was cited as "first rate" by Guitar Review. Soundboard Magazine noted that his exceptionally diverse programs of solo guitar and lute have "kept audiences spellbound."
