Stellar guitarist plays tonight with the symphony

Not only does Dieter Hemmings play the guitar, he also plays the lute at concert level and will be playing each tonight. I heard him play Juan Trigos' Partita last night at the Museo Iconografico. What an experience!
Hemmings is Mexican, born in Sonora of German ancestry.

Tonight the OSUG program ranges from Baroque to Mussorgsky's Pictures from an Exhibition. If you arrive at 7:30, you'll be in time for the pre-conference chat upstairs in the Principal, Trigos and Hemmings presiding.
