Details:The Happy Valley Guitar Orchestra (HVGO) puts on their signature event of the season; two concerts over two nights at Northamptons premiere venue for the arts, the newly opened 33 Hawley St. Presented by the Northampton Center for the Arts, the Valleys finest avant-garde community music ensemble will perform music by James Brown, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Bela Bartok, Felix Mendelssohn, Heitor Villa-Lobos and surf guitar classics such as Pipeline.

HVGOs program is centered around the music of James Brown and Antonio Carlos Jobim. Using as the starting point his own meticulous transcriptions of classic recordings from the 1960s and 70s (James Browns Cold Sweat, Funky Drummer, and Aint it Funky Now and four cuts from Antonio Carlos Jobims LP masterpiece Stone Flower), Artistic Director Joseph Ricker has created arrangements for the HVGO which highlight the work of Brown and Jobim as composers, a less well acknowledged aspect of the legacy of these music icons. The orchestra will also perform Rickers arrangements of selections from Gyermekeknek by Bela Bartok, Songs without Words Felix Mendelssohn, Suite Populaire Brasilienne by Heitor Villa Lobos as well as surf guitar classics such as Pipeline.

HVGO is an ensemble of 15 all-amplified electric, acoustic, classical and bass guitars (plus drums) made up of all locally based players from a wide variety of stylistic backgrounds, creating a unique sound that can only come from such an unusual combination.

The Spring Concerts are where we really get to strut our stuff, says Ricker. Were excited to present this fun, fascinating and beautiful repertoire and show off all the hard work weve been up to this season. Dont miss it!
