“…one of the top young guitarists of his generation.” – Performance Today
Wow, it has been a long time coming, but we’re back! And so is acclaimed guitarist Jordan Dodson, who we featured in 2014 in our first collaboration with Philadelphia non-profit LiveConnections at World Cafe Live at the Queen. Jordan floored us with his imaginative interpretations, flawless technique, and undaunted adventurousness, and we’re happy to be able to welcome him back to our stage. Jordan has the distinction of being the first graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music Guitar Program, started in 2011 under Jason Vieaux and David Starobin. Since graduating from Curtis, Jordan has performed extensively as an Astral Artist, and has been a huge advocate of new music for the guitar, giving many world premieres.
But don’t take my word for it, have a listen for yourself! Here’s Jordan playing the absolutely breathtaking Bloom Suite by Elliot Cole. Bloom Suite
