Feb. 12, 2007 -- Guitarist David Starobin will perform Tuesday, Feb. 27, on the campus of Arkansas State University in Jonesboro.
His performance, an
evening of classical guitar music, begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Student
Union Auditorium. It is free and open to the public. Co-sponsors are the

Starobin is one of
the top classical guitarists of the latter half of the 20th century,
playing a leading role in gaining acceptance for the works of
contemporary composers. Born in New York, Starobin began playing the
guitar at the age of seven, studying with Manuel Gayol, Albert Valdes
Blain, and Aaron Shearer, and eventually graduated from the Peabody
Conservatory of Music.
In 1981, Starobin founded the Bridge Records, Inc. label, which he runs with his wife, Becky. In addition to performing and producing, Starobin has taught at the Manhattan School of Music, where he holds the Andrés Segovia chair.
He has won five Indie Awards and 11 Grammy nominations.
The next Lecture-Concert event will be guitarist David Starobin and conductor George Crumb who will present a concert of music by George Crumb on Thursday, March 1, at 7:30 p.m. in Riceland Hall, Fowler Center.
The Lecture-Concert Series presents diverse programs to enrich the cultural life of the campus, community, and region.
