Petra Poláčková WILL NOT APPEAR DUE TO VISA DELAYS - Eva Beneke will perform in her place.

We are excited that Minnesota's own Eva Beneke will perform a classical guitar program in Petra's place with an excellent program of music by Bartok, Bach, Beneke, Krieger, Ravel and Piazzolla. In addition to performing solo, Eva will be joined by special guests Catherine Ramirez, flute and Richard Kriehn, mandolin.

The other good news is that we are planning to bring Petra Polackova back to perform at Sundin Hall in the Fall of 2019.

Eva Beneke

Born in Berlin (Germany) Eva Beneke began her studies at the Berlin University of Arts with Prof. Martin Rennert. Her success there led her to the Franz Liszt Hochschule in Weimar to study with Prof. Thomas Müller-Pering, one of Germany’s most influential guitarists.
In 2012, Eva received a doctorate with honors from the University of Southern California, Thornton School of Music in Los Angeles where she studied with Scott Tennant, Pepe Romero and jazz-guitar legend Bruce Forman.

In addition to prizes at international guitar festivals in The Netherlands, Italy and the U.S., Eva Beneke is an internationally acclaimed soloist, chamber musician and published arranger. Her performances have been broadcast nationally and internationally on radio and television, such as NPR´s "Performance Today", KUSC and Minnesota Public Radio.

Highlights of her career include appearances with the German Symphony Orchestra under Kent Nagano, invitations to international music festivals in China, Peru, Germany, Luxembourg, Lithuania, the U.S. and Canada, and a live-televised performance with Carrie Underwood at the 2010 American Country Music Awards.

Her 2012 album "In Dulci Jubilo - A Classical Guitar Christmas" is a duo-collaboration with Grammy®-winning guitarist Scott Tennant (L.A.G.Q.). Her latest album "The Complete works for voice and guitar by Fernando Sor" is a collaboration with mezzo-soprano Nerea Berraondo and will be released in the Fall of 2017 with the acclaimed NAXOS label.
