The Hingham Public Library, in partnership with the Boston Classical Guitar Society, is pleased to present John Muratore performing Christmas Music for Guitar, live on Sunday, Dec. 11, at 3 p.m. in the Library’s Whiton Room. This program is an annual favorite event at the Library and is free to attend.

Highly acclaimed classical guitarist John Muratore performs regularly as a solo recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician. As a solo artist he has appeared extensively throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Russia. He has collaborated with numerous chamber ensembles including Emmanuel Music, the Spectrum Singers, Chorus Pro Musica, Alea III, Boston Musica Viva and Counterpoint. Recent appearances as concerto soloist have been with the Ridgefield Symphony, Vermont Symphony and Symphony by the Sea under the direction of Jonathan McPhee.

The Boston Globe has described him as “a fleet-fingered and musicianly performer” and has characterized his playing as…”unleashing so many different varieties of tone and color in quick succession…a kind of aural iridescence.” John, whose live performances have often been featured on NPR, WGBH Radio’s Classical Performances has recorded for Albany, Pont Nuef and Arabesque Records. His most recent CD, Domenie, is a collaboration with accordionist Roberto Cassan. His critically-acclaimed solo CD, Shadow Box, has been hailed by Britain's Classical Guitar magazine as "a fine recording, with serious intent", and his album, Noël-A Classical Guitar Christmas, was listed by CD Baby as one of the top-selling Holiday-Classical albums in 2012.

Mr. Muratore is on the faculty at Boston University, Dartmouth College, and is coordinator of the guitar program at the All Newton Music School.

The Hingham Library and the Boston Classical Guitar Society gratefully acknowledge the support of Coastal Heritage Bank for this season's concert series.
