Presenter: Coastal Concerts and Delaware Division of the Arts

The VIDA Guitar Quartet, based in the United Kingdom, has received high praise from the British press:
VIDA brings together four players of exceptional artistry and “unerring musical instinct”(Gramophone magazine). Their ability to “conjure up an orchestral palette of colour and effects” (Classic FM magazine) combined with exquisite tonal and dynamic control has firmly established them as a passionate and masterful ensemble. “VIDA sparkled with vitality and spontaneity, weaving a rich tapestry ... that held the audience spellbound … These are outstanding musicians. If you can, go hear them play” (Acoustic magazine). The players’ seemingly effortless sense of ensemble and their broad range of timbres and dynamics evoke “listening to an entire orchestra and not merely to four guitars … There’s only one word for it: magic” (Gramophone magazine).

Since forming in 2007, VIDA has performed to acclaim in major venues throughout the United Kingdom and Europe, becoming sought-after festival artists. In 2011, VIDA made its US debuts, in Los Angeles at Loyola Marymount University’s Guitar Festival and in New York City at the Baruch Performing Arts Center. In 2012 VIDA were artists-in-residence at California State University’s Summer Arts program in Monterey Bay.

The VIDA Guitar Quartet’s appearance will be a rare chance to hear the interplay and combined impact of four superb classical guitarists, all top-notch musicians in their own right.
This engagement of VIDA Guitar Quartet is made possible through the Delaware Special Presenters Initiative program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Delaware Division of the Arts

These programs are made possible, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.

Bio:
“Remember the name Rupert Boyd. While there may never be another classical guitarist like Segovia, this young Australian left his Marlow Guitar Series audience with the impression that someday there may not be the likes of him again, either.” – THE WASHINGTON POST

New York-based Australian classical guitarist Rupert Boyd is acclaimed as one of the most talented guitarists of his generation. He has been described by The Washington Post as “truly evocative,” and by Classical Guitar Magazine as “a player who deserves to be heard.” His performances have taken him across four continents, from New York’s Carnegie Hall, to the Barcelona Guitar Festival in Spain, Strings-139 Festival in China, Festival de Musique Classique in France, and every state and territory in mainland Australia.

In addition to his recent Carnegie Hall debut as part of the D’Addario Music Foundation’s “International Competition Winners in Concert” Series, Rupert Boyd’s recent performance highlights include the Newport Music Festival, Music in the Strathmore Mansion, Marlow Guitar Series, Grand Canyon Guitar Society, Boston Guitar Society, University of Denver and University of Hawaii. In New York, Rupert Boyd has performed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City Classical Guitar Society, Merkin Concert Hall, Trinity Wall Street, Bargemusic, SubCulture, and with a diversity of groups such as New York Festival of Song and Moving Theater Dance Company.

Rupert Boyd’s debut recording Valses Poéticos received the following review in the UK magazine Classical Guitar: “The performances that Boyd gives here are first-rate… Even the Bach is one of the best of its kind.” Soundboard, the Guitar Foundation of America’s quarterly publication, gave the CD the following review: “Boyd’s playing is beautifully refined, with gorgeous tone… musically and technically flawless… the album is first-rate.” Soundboard also described the eponymous work by Granados as “one of the best recorded performances of this work on guitar.”

Active as both a soloist and chamber musician, Rupert Boyd regularly performs throughout the world as part of the Australian Guitar Duo with guitarist Jacob Cordover. The duo has given performances in the United States, France, Spain, China, the Philippines and throughout Australia. The duo was a prizewinner of the Chamber Music section of the Australian Guitar Competition, and their debut CD Songs from the Forest was described as “wonderfully entertaining” by Classical Guitar Magazine, and “very impressive” by Soundboard Magazine.

Rupert Boyd holds a Bachelor of Music (First Class Honours) from the Australian National University School of Music, a Master of Music from the Manhattan School of Music and an Artist Diploma from the Yale University School of Music. His major teachers have been Timothy Kain, David Leisner and Benjamin Verdery. In addition to winning the Andrés Segovia award from the Manhattan School of Music, Rupert Boyd was also a winner of the Lillian Fuchs Chamber Music Competition and winner of the Eisenberg-Fried Concerto Competition.

Location: MT. GRETNA PLAYHOUSE, 200 Pennsylvania Avenue, Mt Gretna, PA 17064

When guitarist Christopher Parkening announced his retirement from the concert stage 3 years ago, the world lost one of its leading artists. Fortunately, the loss was only temporary. Mr. Parkening is back, partnering with the astonishingly versatile baritone, Jubilant Sykes, in a program ranging from classical, Broadway and jazz standards, to spirituals, to (appropriately enough) He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.

Christopher Parkening is celebrated as one of the world’s preeminent virtuosos of the classical guitar. The Washington Post called him “the leading guitar virtuoso of our day, combining profound musical insight with complete technical mastery of his instrument.” The New York Times described his playing as “so intelligent, sensitive and adept that one can forget everything but the music.” The Los Angeles Times stated that “Parkening is considered America’s reigning classical guitarist, carrying the torch of his mentor, the late Andrés Segovia.” The great Spanish guitarist Segovia himself proclaimed, “Christopher Parkening is a great artist—he is one of the most brilliant guitarists in the world.”

Parkening’s performances, recordings, and collaborations, which have included artsts such as Kathleen Battle, Renée Fleming, Placido Domingo, Josh Groban, Jubilant Sykes, and composers/conductors John Williams and Elmer Bernstein, have received the highest worldwide acclaim. A frequent soloist with leading orchestras, Parkening has performed at the White House and appeared on 20/20, The Today Show, The Tonight Show, Good Morning America, and The Grammy® Awards.

Parkening has recorded extensively for Angel/EMI Classics, and has received two Grammy® nominations. His autobiography, Grace Like a River (Tyndale House) received wide acclaim. Currently, Parkening is Distinguished Professor of Music and Chair of the Guitar Department at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California.

Christopher, his wife, Theresa, and their son, Luke, live in Malibu, California.

Perhaps no vocalist of our time possesses a more exquisitely versatile instrument than the Grammy-nominated baritone Jubilant Sykes. Mr. Sykes brings a new dimension to the traditional career of the classically trained vocalist by drawing on gospel and jazz influences to deliver performances in differing musical genre that often leaves audiences and critics searching for new superlatives.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution was inspired to proclaim, “Jubilant Sykes’ voice is extraordinary. He isn’t merely an outstanding singer, his voice is art at its highest expression.”

Mr. Sykes was nominated for “Best Classical Recording” for Leonard Bernstein’s Mass, which was named “Editor’s Choice” by Gramophone Magazine. Mr. Sykes also has performed with a number of the world’s finest orchestras and opera companies. He has worked with such conductors as Kurt Masur, Lorin Maazel, Leonard Slatkin, Keith Lockhart, Christoph Eschenbach, David Robertson, Andrew Litton, Marin Alsop, David Zinman, John Nelson, John Williams, and the late Marvin Hamlisch. He has been the featured soloist with many of the world’s finest orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, London Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Minnesota Orchestra as well as the orchestras of Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Houston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Saint Louis, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, and, the BBC Symphony Orchestra in London.

His unique gifts have taken him from such diverse stages as the Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and London’s Barbican Centre to the Apollo Theater, Hollywood Bowl, New Orleans Jazz Festival and hundreds of other venues around the world. His versatility has allowed him to collaborate with a number of leading artists from different musical styles such as the renowned soprano Reneé Fleming in the Mozart Requiem, touring and singing with Julie Andrews, a Boston Pops televised special and tour, appearing as featured soloist on the televised tribute toBrian Wilson from Radio City Music Hall, and with Josh Groban and subsequently Carlos Santana at the Hollywood Bowl.

The release of Jubilation for EMI combined Mr. Sykes with the legendary American classical guitarist, Christopher Parkening. This pairing has drawn such critical acclaim as “. . . the kind of concert a writer holds a few choice adjectives in special reserve for . . . two astonishing musicians.” Mr. Sykes also has released two recordings for Sony BMG Masterworks. The first, Jubilant, brought the singer together with jazz trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard. His crossover recording, Wait for Me, features classic songs by a number of popular composer/entertainers. Jubilant Sykes recently made his acting debut in the film Carry Me Home with Cuba Gooding, Jr., and performed the lead role in a new play Breath and Imagination presented by Hartford Stage.

Jubilant Sykes resides in Southern California with his wife, Cecelia.
