Join us for a free concert with classical guitarist Peter Fletcher on Saturday, April 20 at 2 pm in the Reading Room! 

Peter Fletcher began guitar study at the age of seven. In 1980 maestro José Tomás, Andrés Segovia’s teaching
assistant in Spain, held a weeklong Master Class in Atlanta, GA. Peter Fletcher was the youngest student to
perform in the class, playing music by Bach and Carcassi. In December 1983, he made his formal debut under the
auspices of The Brasstown Concert Association in North Carolina. Wrote the critic of The Cherokee Scout, “He has
technical facility but what one remembers about his playing is the nuances, the poetical phrasing, dynamic and
tonal changes, his harmonics, his cadences.”

Fletcher furthered his studies in Master Classes with David Leisner, David Russell, Oscar Ghiglia and Pepe Romero.
As a performer in the Christopher Parkening Master Class in 1988, he was broadcast on National Public Radio
(NPR). In 1990, the Music Teacher’s National Association (MTNA) awarded Fletcher a prize at its National Level
Competition, and in 1995 he received the Master of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music under
Nicholas Goluses and was twice the recipient of an Eastman Graduate Award.
