The Riverside Symphonia presents “From Venice to Buenos Aires & Rio” on Saturday, Oct. 1, at the First Presbyterian Church in Lambertville, N.J.
The concert will be an intimate evening of music with well-known Spanish guitarist Virginia Luque and the Riverside Symphonia Chamber Ensemble, featuring selections from the Baroque period all the way to the contemporary flamenco period.
“We are very excited to have Virginia Luque with us to usher in our 33rd year of music in Lambertville; the place where our commitment to providing live orchestral music of the highest caliber all started and continues to this day,” said Riverside Symphonia Board Chairman Paul Kuhl. “After the overwhelming and enthusiastic response to last season, our audience can rest assured that the unbridled magic of the orchestra will be on full display on Oct. 1 and throughout the remainder of the 33rd Season.”
Born in Spain, Luque’s distinctive sound of extraordinary vibrato of “bending notes,” and virtually placing a piano pedal inside a guitar comes from a lifelong passion and dedication to bring out all the colors and tones of the guitar. Luque began studying the science of acoustics at an early age with the aspiration of applying the science to the guitar and creating sustains that the guitar doesn’t normally produce. She continues to develop techniques to articulate and sustain notes and chords.
