The Encinitas Guitar Orchestra, a group of 35 local amateur and professional guitarists, will perform in concert Friday, May 24, at 7:30 p.m. at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 925 Balour, Encinitas.
The Encinitas Guitar Orchestra will perform selections from around the world including music from China, the UK, South America, and Africa. Attendees will hear all styles of music from Classical to Jazz to Spanish, to contemporary.
“We find that fans are always intrigued by music from different places and in different genres,” orchestra member and teacher Peter Pupping said. “Most people don’t have a chance to hear live music that hails from other parts of the word.”
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 performer and teacher Pupping. The orchestra is divided into four to eight sections with multiple players on each part. Professional and advanced guitarists help newer players so that everyone can participate and have fun.
Pupping has been teaching and performing in Southern California for more than 30 years. Pupping has released many CDs with his band, the Peter Pupping Band, and solo albums. The latest, entitled “Jazz Bend,” collection of Jazz standards mixed with stylized Rock styles. Pupping earned his 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 followed by a concert.
