Wizards of Acoustic Guitar coming to Unity Spiritual Center

Brian Henke and three other talented performers will bring Finger Style Guitar music to Unity Spiritual Center on March 10.

Four extraordinary guitarists from right here in our community will perform in Wizards of Acoustic Guitar at Unity Spiritual Center, 23855 Detroit Road, Westlake, on Friday, March 10, at 7:00 p.m.

The magnificently talented musicians are: Jesse Smith, 2021 International Finger Style Champion; Pete Cavano, regular guest guitarist at The Chet Atkins Appreciation Society; Brian Henke, International Finger Style Champion Finalist; and newcomer Scott Schlegel, Classical guitarist and University of Akron graduate. Together, they will inspire and entertain you with their incredible talent.

Finger Style Guitar playing is a melodious and sometimes percussive style of guitar playing. One of the most famous finger style guitarists was Chet Atkins. Often, the guitarist will play the melody notes, interspersed with the melody's accompanying chords and the deep bassline simultaneously. Some fingerpicking guitarists also intersperse percussive tapping along with the melody, chords, and bassline.

This concert is a fundraiser for Unity Spiritual Center Westlake. Admission is $20 for adults and $10 for youth (ages 8 to 18). There will be refreshments and three raffles: a 50/50 Raffle, a Magical Music Raffle and – because it is March in Ohio – a set of kites for the Family Fun Raffle. Wizard musician CDs will also be on sale. Doors open and raffle sales begin at 6:15 p.m. The concert starts at 7 p.m.

New this year will be several door prizes and Prosperity Bucks will be sold at the concert. Prosperity Bucks are a donation to the church and can be exchanged for raffle tickets, refreshments or given to a friend to use at the concert.
