Event Details

Please join us in the Brubeck Room for guitar music by John Lehmann-Haupt, who will perform a mix of classical works and his own arrangements of popular and traditional songs, including selections by Bach, Albeniz, Villa-Lobos, Gershwin, Pat Metheny, and James Taylor.

Guitarist John Lehmann-Haupt, known equally for his arrangements of popular and traditional songs and for his classical interpretations, has been playing since he was five years old. He has released two acclaimed CDs, Songs of the Guitar and Songs of the Guitar II, and has performed in concert throughout the Northeast. His 12-year engagement at Windows on the World (atop the former World Trade Center) was cited for musical excellence by The New York Times. John’s arrangements have been published by Mel Bay, and his writings on music have appeared in The New York Times and several other publications. He was a staff instructor at New York’s American Institute of Guitar from 1982 until its 2008 closing, and since 2006 he has served on the Board of Directors of the New York City Classical Guitar Society.
