Michael Chapdelaine Nov 14th, Concert Reminder

Michael received great reviews from MFGS members after his last concert in March 2008. He is truly a fabulous guitarist and entertainer with amazing expressiveness and breathtaking technique. Michael is the only guitarist in the world to win international honors in both nylon and steel string competitions. You won’t want to miss him  (besides, it’s our last concert of the year!)   We’ve mentioned that he was a student of Andres Segovia and on there is a tape from a master class with the master himself. Segovia listens and then impatiently disses a young Chapdelaine off the stage since Michael isn’t following Segovia’s transcription precisely. It's about 9 minutes long but you'll see that Michael makes the best of it and he has come a long way from that day; we hope you’ll see him this Saturday.

Here are a couple of songs you might hear on Saturday.


This will be our last show of the 2009 series and we will be raffling off some CDs & DVD’s graciously given to us from our friend,  Rob Poland of Candyrat records   Rob has quite the stable of guitarists & singersongwiters and a few of them will be coming to MFGS next year.


On Saturday before you come to the show turn on the radio and tune in to Michael performing live, just after 9am on  Pam Rossi’s ‘Overeasy’ show, WCSX 94.7 , 7a-10a Sat. & Sun.  And then just after 12 noon on Ann Delisi’s ‘Essential Music’ show, WDET 101.9, 12 - 4pm Sat. & Sun.   


And finally, Michael (his 2008 workshop in photo) will be sponsoring a 2 hr guitar workshop on Saturday from 3pm-5pm at the First United Methodist Church.  The workshop costs $40 and discounted concert tickets are $10 for workshop attendees.  Call 248-646-4030 to reserve a spot or for more information.


See you Saturday
