Barrio Duo Concert

Sky Islands was treated to an incredible classical guitar performance by the local group Barrio Duo, sponsored by the UofA’s Lead Guitar program and in conjunction with the Lead Guitar class. Barrio Duo is comprised of José Luis Puerta and Jonathan Crissman, formed in the spring of 2016. The Barrio Duo’s current program is influenced by the research that both members made for their Doctoral degrees. Jonathan’s research was on the eighteenth-century keyboard music of Antonio Soler, and José Luis studied the folkloric elements in ensemble music from Latin American composers. 

Sky Islands is fortunate to be able to hold special events like these, thanks to our participation in the Lead Guitar program.
