Moises Guevara & Ben Howard
Born in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, Moises Guevara obtained his degree as Professor de Guitarra from the Univeristy of Guanajuato. He has studied classical and flamenco music, most recently with renowned guitarist Dennis Koster in New York City. He has given numerous concerts in Mexico and in New York at the invitation of the Westside Arts Coalition.
Ben Howard studied classical guitar with Gilbert Biberian in Leeds, England and has performed in master classes conducted by Dennis Koster, Alice Artzt, and David Russell. For many years he taught private lessons in classical guitar at Alfred University and performed in faculty recitals. The author of six collections of poems, he has sometimes combined guitar performance with readings from his work.
Ben Howard and Moises Guevara offer a varied repertoire that includes Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, and modern music for two guitars. Their recitals feature guitar solos, duets, and arrangements of works originally composed for lute, harpsichord, and piano.
