The Avanti Guitar Trio will be performing at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the First Congregational Church, 10 East Park Place NE, for the Grand Rapids Community College International Guitar Series
The Chicago-based trio composed of Jason Deroche, Julie Goldberg and Wesley Hixson will be performing musical pieces ranging from Baroque – a Western art style of music – to contemporary pop.
“This is the first time we’ve had them here,” said Brian Morris, guitar music professor at GRCC. “They will play the Carmen Suite, from the opera “Carmen,” a very famous piece. As well as a lot of South American jazzy, fun flashy music.”
There is limited parking at the church, but parking is available in the GRCC parking ramp at a cost of $3.50 for students. Attendees can receive a parking voucher at the door.
Tickets are $10 for students, and $15 dollars for the general public and can be purchased at the door, and are also available online.
