The Encinitas Guitar Orchestra spring session’s theme is A World of Guitar Music, featuring music from China, South America, Cuba, Scotland, Spain, and more. Up to 40 orchestra musicians will practice then perform classical and contemporary selections adapted for four or more parts for a guitar orchestra.
The session begins March 11 and goes through the end of May, with a concert on May 24. Rehearsals are Mondays from 7 to 9 p.m. at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Encinitas.
The orchestra is comprised of 30 – 40 local guitarists from beginning through advanced levels who learn classical guitar technique and ensemble skills under the supervision of noted local guitar performers and teachers Peter Pupping and several professional and semi-professional assistants. The orchestra is divided into four to eight sections with multiple players on each part.
Pupping has been teaching and performing in Southern California for more than 30 years, and has released many CDs with his band, the Peter Pupping Band, and solo albums. Pupping earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in music from San Diego State University. He organizes and directs the Encinitas Guitar Orchestra’s two, three-month sessions each year, along with several advanced and smaller ensembles.
