YANNI-ISH: The Assad Brothers

BRAZILIAN GUITAR FESTIVAL
7:30 p.m., Reynolds Performance Hall, UCA. $10-$35.

Arguably the world's premier classical guitar duo headlines UCA's Brazilian Guitar Festival on Tuesday. The Assad Brothers, Brazilian-born siblings Odair and Sergio, lead the way, with accompaniment from their sister Badi, a decorated guitarist in her own right — not to mention an accomplished vocalist. Renowned New York-based jazz guitarist Romero Lubambo also performs, along with folk guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Celso Machado. Before the concert, the Assad Brothers will present a master class for guitarists from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in Snow Fine Arts Center Recital Hall at UCA. The class is free and open to the public and interested musicians. For information about the class, contact Guy Couch, director of UCA Public Appearances, at 501-450-3286 or at guyc@uca.edu.
