Classical Guitar

About

Since 1998, Concert In Your Living Room founder and internationally known concert guitarist Dave McLellan has been performing recitals of beloved works in the solo classical guitar literature in intimate settings in private homes. The repertoire and character of the classical guitar make it ideal for small gatherings that are comfortable in the modern urban living room, with audience sizes from ten to forty.

"Dave’s Concert in Your Living Room was one of the best concerts I have attended in my 20+ years as a professional musician. He provides an intimate atmosphere, complete with incredibly expressive music along with his own observations about the pieces. Whether you’re looking for an event for a special occasion, a gathering of friends, or a fundraiser for a charitable organization, Dave will elevate any living room into the perfect living room."
Cathy Meyer, Minister of Music, Memorial Congregational Church, Sudbury, MA.
