Description

Fundraising Concert for the Bill Viola Memorial Fund       

Bill Viola was among the few prominent classical guitar guitar instructors in Philadelphia in the 1960s and was among the founding members of the Philadelphia Classical Guitar Society, serving on the board and as treasurer for many years.    The Bill Viola Memorial Fund has been established to inspire under-served individuals in our community through musical experiences, music instruction and music education and the fund's Inaugural Concert features his Elliot Fisk,  his most prominent student.       

      Guitarist Eliot Fisk is known worldwide as a charismatic performer famed for his adventurous and virtuosic repertoire. He is also celebrated for his willingness to take art music into unusual venues (schools, senior centers, and even logging camps and prisons!). After nearly 50 years before the public he remains as his mentor Andres Segovia once wrote, “at the top line of our artistic world.”
     In the 2017-18 season Fisk continues to break new ground for the guitar with marathon performances of his transcriptions of all 6 Bach solo cello Suites, duo performances with guitar legend Angel Romero and with a new trio formed with virtuoso guitarists Joaquin Clerch and Aniello Desiderio.
