The Boston Classical Guitar Society Presents: Art, Science, Lutherie, and the Classical Guitar
Saturday, April 303:00—4:15 PMMultipurpose Room 138Tufts Library46 Broad Street, Weymouth, MA, 02188
Join a professional luthier and a master musician to learn the ins and outs of the classical guitar!
Juan Oscar Azaret is luthier and physics professor who teams up with Robert J. Ward, a classical guitarist and music professor to demonstrate the links between science, craft, and art in the creation and playing of the classical guitar. This multimedia presentation explores the continuum of phenomena from the instrument’s wood to the human perception of sound.
To palpably illustrate the craft, physics, and physiology the presenters will use live vibrational equipment, audio instrumentation, pre-assembly guitar parts, animated slides, videos, and performances on a variety of unique custom instruments.
This presentation has evolved and been refined over the last decade, as class curricula and for presentations at various universities, guitar festivals, community centers, and conventions of the Guild of American Luthiers, the Guitar Foundation of America, Acoustical Society of America, the Martin Guitar factory, and others.
Be sure to join us when the BCGS returns on Saturday, May 14th with The Transcontinental Duo.
