Merced College Music Department  Presents The Return Of World Guitar Night

 Friday, September 22, 2017 ~ 7:30 p.m

Get ready for the return of renowned guitarists Francesco Buzzurro and Richard Smith to the Merced area. Buzzurro and Smith will perform the music of Italy, the Mediterranean, and America for one night only on Friday, Sept. 22, as part of their Heart of the Immigrant Tour.


The show begins at 7:30 p.m. and will be held at the Merced  Multicultural Art Center, 645 W. Main Street.


The guitarists, who played before a packed Merced audience two years ago, are touring the United States in September, and this Merced appearance may be the only opportunity local music lovers will have to see them.


“People raved about their last show here,” said John Albano, dean of  Social Sciences, Humanities, and Arts.  “The audience was simply blown away.

This is a world class event for Merced.”


Tickets will be available for purchase at the Merced Multicultural Art  Center, the Merced College Bookstore, and at Gottschalk’s Music. General admission is $20, while tickets for students, seniors and military are $15.
