Spots available

John W. Warren, composer and Latin American classical guitarist, has performed extensively in the United States and Latin America. He performs the music of Brazil, Cuba, Latin America, and Spain; his own compositions; and arrangements of popular songs.

His album "Serenata de la Sirena" features original compositions and pieces by Latin American composers. Warren has presented concerts, radio performances, and performed at private and corporate events throughout the United States, and in Brazil, Bolivia, Mexico, and Spain.

Warren performs solo at more intimate house concerts, and with sensational Brazilian percussionist Bruno Lucini at larger Groupmuse gatherings.
