Summer Concert Series: John Marcel Williams & Lenny Ranallo

August 19, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us on our rooftop on Thursday, August 19, 6-8PM as we welcome classical guitarists John Marcel Williams and Lenny Ranallo!

Award-winning artist John Marcel Williams is establishing a reputation as both a virtuoso concert artist and a devoted teacher. By age 16 he had garnered over 20 prizes at competitions, including first prize at the Boston Guitar Festival youth competition, Rosario Guitar Festival, Classical Minds Guitar Festival, and second prize at the International Guitar Foundation of America young artist competition. In addition, he was awarded first prize at the James Stroud competition and won the Pittsburgh Concert Society Audition.

Drawing inspiration not only from Bach and Beethoven but from John Coltrane and Frank Zappa, American guitarist Leonard Ranallo seeks to blur the line between composer, performer, and improviser. Equally comfortable in the concert hall or local club, Ranallo brings a unique vitality to every performance. His fluency in both classical and electric guitar has resulted in performances across the United States and Europe.

Special thanks to Old City Coffee for their support.

Wine, beer, and snacks will be available for purchase.
