Queens Library at Jackson Heights
35-51 81 Street, Jackson Heights

Francisco Roldán and Gretchen Farrar enchant with a bi-lingual concert of classical guitar and vocals of varied styles, genres, and eras with a common thread.  Interweaving (entretejiendo in Spanish) is about taking single strands of melody, harmony, poetry, rhythm, and dynamics and fusing them together into a cohesive, expressive whole.   The voice and the guitar thread their way in and out of one another, creating a variegated tapestry of sound. For more information on Interweaving, please visit franciscoroldan.com and gretchenfarrar.com. Suggested for age 12 and up.
