    "In just 5 minutes, Verdery creates more mind-numbingly original excitement and virtuosic fire than Jimmy Page in 1969." (MusicNOW) Benjamin Verdery, curator of New York's 92nd St Y's guitar series and long-time professor of guitar at Yale University, is a master of the serious art music of Bach, Janacek, and Strauss, but also blurs boundaries with his own solo acoustic interpretations of Jimi Hendrix. Hailed by The New York Times as "iconoclastic" and "inventive," classical guitarist Benjamin Verdery performs throughout the globe and has recorded over 15 albums. Winner of the 1992 Guitar Player Magazine Best Classical Guitar Recording, he is a prolific composer as well as chair of the guitar department at Yale University. Tickets: $34, $28, $19
