Peter Fletcher, Classical Guitarist

Peter Fletcher is a critically acclaimed classical guitarist. We are very pleased to welcome him back to Central Citizens' Library to perform for us on Tuesday, May 17, at 6:30 PM in the Central High School auditorium. Mr. Fletcher has toured the world playing his guitar at over 100 concerts each year. In the tradition of Segovia, Fletcher believes in expanding the repertoire of guitar music by transcribing music from other instruments, making his music a unique and exciting experience.
