“Collectively, they are the only classical guitar quartet of real stature in the world today; in fact, they virtually invented the format.”—The New York Times

The Royal Family of the Guitar returns to 92Y bringing a program celebrating one of Europe’s most culturally vibrant regions—Andalucia, the southern part of Spain. Especially famous for the flamenco, its music is an intriguing mix of Western and Arabic traditions. This concert spans more than two centuries, from the Classical era to works written by Celedonio Romero, the founder of the ensemble, and his son Pepe, the current leader of the clan.

Join us for a free pre-concert talk at 7 pm with your ticket, with Benjamin Verdery, artistic director of 92Y’s Art of the Guitar series and chair of Yale’s guitar department.
