Join us in the back garden for a very special, all-acoustic concert of classical Italian Guitar Masterworks of the Romantic Era, deftly performed by Alexander Milovanov. You're invited to join friends, neighbors, and fellow music lovers among the flowers and fruit trees behind our Venice bungalow for this springtime Saturday evening performance. Alexander performed here back in October 2022, and the venue allows the rare opportunity to hear outstanding classic guitar repertoire works as intended without microphones or amplification. Feel free to bring drinks and snacks or a full-on picnic of your own. We'll also have a few beverages and do a little baking beforehand. If you come early, there's a multi-level tree house with limited spots if you prefer "a balcony" seat. The program is listed below:

Anton Diabelli (1781-1858)
Sonata in F Major, Op. 29, No. 3 - I. Allegro moderato

Luigi Legnani (1790-1877)
