Alex de Grassi in concert March 13
The Valhalla Grand Hall will offer a chance to get up close and personal with acoustic guitar virtuoso Alex de Grassi on Thursday, March 13.
One of the world’s top fingerstyle, steel-string guitarists, the Grammy nominee will play a VIP concert, “Up Close & Personal with Alex de Grassi,” at 6 p.m., then a public performance at 7:30. Tickets to the VIP show are $100, with limited seating. General admission tickets are $25.
Proceeds benefit the nonprofit Sierra Nevada Alliance, Friends of Hope Valley, and the Sierra Fund.
The Wall Street Journal has called de Grassi’s playing “flawless,” and Billboard hailed his “intricate finger-picking technique with an uncanny gift for melodic invention.” De Grassi’s trademark is an ability to create a highly orchestrated sound in his solo guitar music. His playing weaves together melody, counter-melody, bass, harmony, rhythm, and cross-rhythms. Vintage Guitar Magazine called his playing “nothing short of brilliant.”
