We enjoyed another fantastic evening of excellent music, Tuesday, October 3rd at the beautiful Paschal Winery in Talent with an excellent turnout.

Longtime friend of the guitar society, Johannes Moeller, will be performing with his wife, Argentine guitarist Laura Fraticelli on Sunday, October 8 at 7pm at Paschal Winery. The program will also include beautiful compositions by Johannes inspired by China. You can read more about them and watch videos on Johannes’ website.
