Classical Guitarist, Richard Miller, Brazil

We kicked off our 2017-2018 Classical Guitar Season with a celebration of bossa nova!

For the first performance, we invited you to the Cultural Arts Center at Montgomery College, Silver Spring/Takoma Park, MD to hear Classical guitarist, Richard Miller (Brazil) perform. He was joined by special guests Débora Watts (voice) & our very own, João Figueirôa (classical guitar).

You may have heard Richard Miller perform in last year’s partnership with Montgomery County, MD Public Library as part of our Education and Outreach series.

RIchard Miller, BRAZIL

Come by for a delightful program of classical guitar music, inspired by Brazil, on October 21, 2017, 8pm. Find tickets here: marlowguitar.org

Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Richard Miller’s recent concerts include special performances for Pope Francis and President Obama. He has played at Strathmore Hall, Kennedy Center, and Merkin Hall; as well
as jazz clubs in New York City and Washington DC. As a teacher, he has given workshops at Texas Southern University, University of Florida, Georgetown University and NYU, among many others.

Hailed as “an ambassador of Brazilian music” by The Washington
Post, João Paulo Figueirôa is a foremost interpreter of music from Brazil, performing solo and with orchestra throughout the US and South America in guitar festivals, on television and radio. João is Executive Director of Marlow Guitar International, and head of Guitar at The Catholic University of America.

Born in Saquarema, a small beach town north of Rio, Débora Watts grew up believing she was going to be a scientist, but left Organic Chemistry to explore life outside the lab. After traveling from Peru to India, Débora moved to New York City, where she heard Brazilian music performed at the legendary “Cafe Wha?” and realized that her true dream was to be a singer.

Débora performs samba, Latin jazz, and bossa nova, and has recently recorded her second CD, of original compositions.
