Freddy Clarke, a flamenco/classical guitarist, will perform this Sunday at St. Patrick's in Incline Village.

The Tahoe Chamber Music Society is excited to present new genres in its 2014 lineup.

Last week, the organization hosted its first jazz concert in its 40-year history for an incredibly warm and welcoming audience.

This weekend, on July 27, Tahoe Chamber is pleased to present an intimate recital with the Freddy Clarke, a flamenco/classical guitarist at St. Patrick's Episcopal Church at 2:30 pm.

Mr. Clarke studied classical guitar at San Francisco State University with Rani Cochran and privately with Narcisso Yepes, Rey De La Torre and Leo Brower.

He studied composition with Gus Gustavson, Roger Nixon and Peter Sacco with an emphasis on form and technique. His program will feature both well-loved and established works and original compositions.

Mr. Clarke draws creative influence from Igor Stravinski and John Cage in his compositions.

For Freddy, no piece is ever "finished." The acoustic meets the electronic. Sounds are taken from another place and time then reintegrated into the present. Mr. Clarke comes from a musical family.

His father has built over 50 guitars, and his mother is a gifted singer, specializing in Mexican folk songs. Join the Tahoe Chamber Music Society this Sunday for an event that will be truly unique.

Tahoe Chamber will present four more concerts on consecutive Sundays at 2:30 p.m. at St. Patrick's Episcopal Church, at the corner of Village and Northwood in Incline Village.

All concerts are free. Learn more at tahoechambermusic.org.
