Andre Feriante Live in Sedona, AZ

Andre Feriante Concert: “The Poet of the Guitar”

November 12th, 2016

 Andre FerianteIf you are going to be visiting Sedona, Arizona this coming weekend you will not want to miss out on the opportunity to see the Award-winning, internationally-recognized classical and flamenco guitarist/composer Andre Feriante! Andre Feriante, back by popular demand, will perform his new show “The Poet of the Guitar” at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on November 12th at 7:00 pm! Feriante will present a version of his ‘StringStories’, a multi-instrument show on guitar, ukulele and banjo, with a seasonal twist.

In “The Poet of the Guitar” Andre will take you on a poetic and musically diverse journey, Spanish Guitar classics, jazz standards, original compositions, pop songs on the ukulele, poetry of Lorca and Rumi and renderings of Bach, Villa-Lobos and Leonard Cohen. He will also be featuring songs from his new album “Terra de Eros”.

“This is not a traditional guitar concert, its more about storytelling, feeling good with the music, having an experience of connection, joy and even healing,” says Feriante. “As the silence finds its way into my music it opens windows of surprise and affirmations of beauty. I love the words of Andres Segovia — ‘… it’s better to move them than amaze them.’ When I play for you I try to get lost in the music and stop thinking. I hope to share this place of timelessness and bliss with you.”

Tickets are only $15 for general admission and $13 for Film Festival members and students! All tickets include a meet-and-greet with Feriante in the lobby after the show! And if you are a guest of the Best Western PLUS Inn of Sedona you can leave the driving to us! Our Complimentary “About Town” Sedona Shuttle will drop you off at the concert and pick you up when you are ready to return to the hotel! To purchase tickets to this special Sedona concert please visit the Sedona International Film Festival. For more information about Feriante, visit the artist’s website: www.andreferiante.com.
