Salisbury University’s Guitar in the Gallery series presents Zane Forshee 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, November 3, in the University Gallery of Fulton Hall.

Zand Forshee

Fingerstyle Guitar magazine has called Forshee “one of his generation’s finest guitarists.” The chamber and solo musician has performed at venues throughout North America, Europe and Asia, including the Library of Congress; New York City Classical Guitar Society; Joseph Joachim Konzertsaal in Berlin, Germany; and Chimei Museum in Taiwan.

With his first album, Initial, Forshee performed works from three contrasting composers: Baroque Italian harpsichord virtuoso Domenico Scarlatti, Cuban guitarist Leo Brouwer and 19th-century Spanish pianist Isaac Albéniz. The collection earned rave reviews from Classical Guitar magazine: “Forshee immediately establishes his credentials as an excellent player, with clarity, precision and an abundance of fine technique.”

Forshee holds a D.M.A. from Johns Hopkins University’s Peabody Conservatory of Music. He chairs the Guitar and Harp Department of the Peabody Institute’s preparatory division; serves on faculty at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County; and is in residence at the Performing Arts Institute Summer Music Festival in Pennsylvania.

Admission to his performance is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-677-3269.

Guitarist Matt Palmer has appeared as a soloist throughout the United States, Europe, Mexico, Canada, South America, and the Caribbean. A recent recipient of the “Up and Coming Guitarist of the Year” award by Guitar International Magazine, Matt has been described by critics as “a young artist about to make a real dent in the world of classical guitar” (Premier Guitar Magazine), “highly expressive and technically virtuosic” (Modern Guitars Magazine), and “a truly accomplished and refined musician” (Cleveland Classical). An active performer, winner of numerous guitar competitions, and author of The Virtuoso Guitarist method, Matt Palmer has gained worldwide recognition as a virtuosic and soulful concert artist.

Matt Palmer

His debut CD, Un tiempo fue Itálica famosa, has been applauded by Guitar International Magazine as “an album of the highest quality…with flawless technique, deep levels of personal expression, and an artistic integrity that seems far too rare these days.” Classical Voice of North Carolina proclaims Matt’s “positively nuclear” debut displays “stunning precision and unwavering accuracy enclosed in a huge dynamic envelope.” In addition, Matt’s pioneering guitar method, The Virtuoso Guitarist, has been recognized as a valuable addition to guitar pedagogy, and “indispensable for any advanced guitarist or teacher to include in their library” (Classical Guitar Review).

Matt Palmer

Matt Palmer holds the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from The University of Arizona, where he studied with Thomas Patterson and Artists-in-Residence David Russell, Sergio Assad, and Odair Assad. Self-taught as a youth, he began his formal studies at age 20 with William Yelverton at Middle Tennessee State University, and later received his M.M. at Appalachian State University, where he studied with Douglas James.
