Happy Valley Guitar Orchestra Open Air Rehearsal

Friday, May 26, 6-8 pm outside First Churches, 129 Main Street

The Happy Valley Guitar Orchestra (HVGO) entertains listeners with an Open Air Rehearsal. Peter Blanchette coaches the ensemble, revealing the process by which these fine electric and acoustic guitarists bring music to life. The repertoire is a typical HVGO melange of New Music (featuring work on Blanchette’s new Concerto for Guitar Orchestra, to be premiered in 2018), and arrangements of music from far afield, including Surf and British Isles dances.

HVGO is a resident company of the Northampton Center for the Arts. We thank the Downtown Northampton Association for its support in hosting this festive event to kick off Memorial Day Weekend.
