Hello Groupmusers,

You're all invited to my next rooftop Groupmuse concert on October 28 at 4:30pm, which will be located on my private terrace overlooking Central Park in the Upper West Side. The program will feature a variety of chamber music that I have either composed or arranged for guitar and various combinations of string quartet (two violins, viola, cello). Featuring string players from the New York Virtuosi, I started this project to revive the guitar chamber music repertoire. Many serious composers such as Vivaldi, Paganini, and Piazzola have composed chamber music for this instrumentation. You'll hear this more obscure, yet equally relevant repertoire at this concert.

General admission is $20, which will be divided equally among all four musicians. Feel free to contact me directly at [email protected] if you'd like to sponsor future initiatives that incorporate the classical guitar in chamber music settings. Visit www.tyeaustin.com for more information.

As always, don't forget to bring your own beverages, and mingle with the musicians and other guests before and after the show.

Tye's Biography:
Hailed by NBC News for making “…the guitar sing like it was invented only to be in his hands,” native Oregonian Tye Austin is an international award-winning classical guitarist and composer based in New York City. He has debuted solo at Carnegie Hall, London’s Royal Albert Hall, the Boston State House, and he’s been featured in Psychology Today, The Boston Guardian, and live on National Public Radio. The 2017-18 concert season will see him perform at the United Nations, the French Embassy in NYC, and the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth. Tye plays a wide range of musical genres from classical to jazz and contemporary pop. He gained profound insight while studying flamenco and Spanish classical guitar music with David Martinez and Adrian Ruis in Granada and Villa-Real, Spain, where Tye visited the historical monuments and childhood homes of his favorite Spanish composers. As a prodigious composer/arranger with over fifty original works to his name, Tye is also dedicated to expanding the classical guitar repertoire. His first guitar lessons and fundamental music studies began at Southern Oregon University in 2008, and he received his Master of Music degree from the New England Conservatory in 2016, where he studied with legendary maestro Eliot Fisk (the last student of Andres Segovia). Tye plays a custom-made 2015 Steve Connor Guitar from Cape Cod, MA. In his spare-time, he enjoys meditating, reading in solitude, and riding his bike through Central Park.
