The Professional Guest Artist Series at Saddleback College is proud to bring the world-renowned Minneapolis Guitar Quartet to the McKinney Theatre stage on Saturday, January 26, 2013 at 7:30 pm. With the passion, style, and musical sophistication borrowing from the best chamber music and string quartet traditions, the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet has successfully made its case as one of the world's leading guitar ensembles since its founding in 1986. The quartet has performed throughout the United States both in recital and with orchestra, balancing a dizzying array of first-rate repertoire ranging from Renaissance and Baroque to Spanish, Latin American and Romantic, to highly imaginative existing and newly commissioned contemporary works. Cutting-edge composer/performer Daniel Bernard Roumain, one of more than 20 composers commissioned by the MGQ, calls the group "more than a guitar quartet, more than superb musicians, and more than a great chamber group. They are ambassadors of sound, style, and substance." Members of the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet are Joseph Hagedorn, Wade Oden, Ben Gateno and Maja Radovanlija. "Flawless, musical and witty, this quartet is able to do anything it sets its mind on.” --Classical Guitar Magazine (England)
