The Lebanon Concert Association will welcome the California Guitar Trio to the Cowan Civic Center stage at 7 p.m. Friday in its ongoing 2018-2019 series of performances.
Musicians Bert Lams, Hideyo Moriya and Paul Richards have performed together for the past 25 years, with performances across the country spanning 1,800 concerts and 15 albums. Regarded as one of the most well-known guitar trios in the country, their repertoire ranges from the classics, such as the “William Tell Overture” and “Tocatta and Fugue in D Minor,” to classic rock selections like “Good Vibrations” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
Individual tickets to LCA concerts are $20 per person, with a limited number available at the door. Season tickets, which include six LCA concerts per year, are $75 per person.
Future concerts in the current season include:
— Leon Sings Noel, 7 p.m. Dec. 6. Baritone Leon Williams, an alumnus of the Harlem Boys Choir and a graduate of the Julliard School of Music, brings his own interpretation to several holiday classics and more.
— Classical pianist Frederic Chiu performs a “Classical SmackDown” at 7 p.m. Feb. 19. Chiu performs an audience participation program that asks the concert goers to pick a favorite work from four separate rounds of various pieces from composers Sergei Prokofiev versus Claude Debussy to determine an ultimate audience favorite.
