Dominic Gaudious Performs November 14
Instrumental guitarist and composer Dominic Gaudious will perform at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 14, at Penn State York's Pullo Family Performing Arts Center. The program, sponsored by Penn State York and the York Newspaper Co., is free to the public.
After successfully releasing two albums and touring with an eclectic rock band in the 1980s, Gaudious found his passion in the contemplative world of classical/world beat music. Working mainly with six- and 12-string acoustic guitars and incorporating exotic instruments such as the Australian didgeridoo, Gaudious created a unique playing style which blends the sounds of classical, jazz, Flamenco, folk and world beat.
Gaudious has performed at the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games, the Australian Embassy, Montreux Music Festival, for National Geographic, opened for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and appeared with Acoustic Alchemy, The Rippingtons and guitarists such as Pierre Bensusan and Adrian Legg. Most recently, his music has been featured on National Public Radio, he has toured Japan, appeared with Pat Benatar, Kip Winger, appeared on FOX TV's "30 Seconds to Fame" and performed for John Petrucci, Joe Satriani and Steve Vai.
