The Victoria Conservatory of Music (VCM) is proud to kick off their VCM Presents Concert series for 2010-2011 with Peruvian born, New York city based classical guitarist Jorge Caballero.
A native of Lima, Peru, Jorge Caballero comes from a musical family. His mother is a well-known singer in Peru and as a child he spent many evenings sitting back stage at her concerts. He learned to play the from his father, but had already absorbed much knowledge about the instrument from listening to his father give lessons. Growing up at a time when terrorists in Peru bombed electrical stations, he became an expert at practicing in the dark.
His performances range from Bach to Ginastera, from Paganini to Ponce, from Scarlatti and Dowland to Guiliani and Legnani, from Renaissance pieces for the vilhuela to modern composers like Carter and Berio.
