Stone Church Arts presents classical guitarist Frank Wallace

BELLOWS FALLS — Stone Church Arts presents classical guitarist Frank Wallace at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 21. The concert will take place in the Chapel at Immanuel Episcopal Church, 20 Church St.

Since 2001, Wallace has been a prolific composer of solos, songs, and chamber music with classical guitar. He has written more than 100 songs, most of them in cycles ranging from three to 15 songs, with poetry from many sources, including Pulitzer-Prize winning poet Theodore Roethke, Robert Creeley, Federico García Lorca, Guillevic, Shem Tov Ben Palquera, Rumi, Nancy Knowles, and the composer himself.

His recent chamber music includes an hour-long suite called “As It Could Be” for the Hartt School's 50th Anniversary of the Guitar Department, commissioned with support from the Augustine Foundation.

Wallace founded and directed for four years the Boston Classical Guitar Society's Festival 21, celebrating all that is new in 21st century guitar, as well as serving two years as the society's director. In New York City, he founded, and with John Olson co-directed, the Second Sundays Guitar Series run by the New York City Classical Guitar Society and Roger Smith Hotel.

He has taught at the New England Conservatory, Plymouth State College, Emmanuel College, Keene State College, and Franklin Pierce University and has a degree in classical guitar from San Francisco Conservatory. As a performer he has toured widely throughout the U.S., Europe and South America since the mid-1970s.
