The Santa Cruz Guitar Orchestra presents "Scenes from Guitar Island," the final concert of the 2011-12 season, with an exciting program of music from Baroque and traditional South American to ragtime and swingjazzstyles played by a symphony of guitars! Directed by guitarist/composer Mesut Özgen, the SCGO is comprised of professional players, teachers, and students from the local community. This year, the SCGO was invited to the Davis Art Center and Santa Cruz Baroque Festival and performed concerts for the enthusiastic audiences.The concert program includes a wide range of works. Among the highlights are Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos's beautiful "Aria" from the Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5, Mark Houghton's "Twangology" inspired by the music of Django Reinhardt, Ben Verdery's "Scenes from Ellis Island" featuring surprise guest musicians in the exciting finale with a specialrhythmic pattern from traditional East Indian music, and the swing jazz master Dorado Schmitt's "Tchavolo Swing" from the famous movie about Gypsy musicians: "Latcho Drom". Among the guest musicians are soprano Sheila Willey Hannon, guitarist and luthier Kenny Hill, violinist Aimee Hamel, and Paul Mehling, the lead guitarist and founder of the legendary swing jazz band "Hot Club of San Francisco".
