Performance by Guitarist Peter Fletcher hosted by the Port St. Joe Public Library
February 12 @ 4:00 pm
Peter Fletcher began guitar study at the age of seven under classical guitar instructor, John Sutherland. In 1980 the classical guitarist José Tomás, Andrés Segovia’s teaching assistant in Spain, held a week long Master Class in Atlanta, GA. Peter Fletcher was the youngest student to perform in the class, playing music by Bach and Carcassi. In December, 1983, he made his formal debut at the age of fifteen under the auspices of The Brasstown Concert Association in North Carolina. Fletcher furthered his studies through Master Classes and received a Master of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music where he was twice the recipient of an Eastman Graduate Award.
In demand as a performer in cultural venues throughout the country, Mr. Fletcher has been invited to give recitals across the country and made his New York Debut at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in February 2007, and returned in 2008, 2009 and 2010 to a completely sold-out house.
Peter Fletcher’s three recordings, The Art of Classical Guitar, A Peter Fletcher Recital and Federico Mompou: Guitar Works (Centaur Records CRC 2588), have received critical acclaim. In September 2005 Centaur Records released Peter Fletcher plays Erik Satie. Peter Fletcher Plays Baroque Music for Guitar was released in 2008 on the Tower Hill Recordings label. Mr. Fletcher’s latest recording project involves an all-Grieg album, for which he himself wrote the guitar transcriptions. It was released February 2014 on Centaur Records.
