Tuesdays till Two - 19th March: guitarist Estevão Devides,

Estevo Devides The spring Tuesdays Till Two season continues with a return appearance by Brazilian guitarist Estevão Devides, who last played for us in 2017.
 

When:    Tuesday 19th March
Where:   St Johns Church, Church Street, Peterborough, PE1 1XB
Time:      1pm


Estevão began studying the guitar at the age of 9 and he has a wide repertoire. Born in Brazil he studied at the Conservatory of Tatuí in Brazil and graduated in a Licentiate of Music Degree from the Unimes- University of Santos.

In Brazil he has performed in schools, theatres and museums sponsored by companies in partnership with the Government of Culture. This financed his first recording of a CD in 2014 with 25,000 free copies that were distributed to students during his school performances.

He has participated in International Guitar Encounters, performing master classes with renowned guitarists such as: Berta Rojas (Paraguay); Jorge Caballero (Peru) and Duo Assad (Brazil).

In 2013, the Brazilian Ministry of Culture selected Estevão to be part of a Cultural Exchenge which included free concerts at Whitefriars Church School, Snettisham Primary School and Forward Day Centre in King’s Lynn/ Norfolk.

As usual the café will be open from noon, serving a range of hot drinks and home-made quiche, cakes, scones etc.  There will be several new members to the pop-up café team, and this year all profits from the café will go towards funding our programme of future events.

The concert will begin promptly at 1pm. Admission is free, but those who are able to afford it are asked to make a donation. The suggested amount is £5.
