Guitar students take the stage for spring performance


Students in the Marshall University Guitar Studio took the stage Tuesday for their spring performance at the Jomie Jazz Forum.
There were 11 students who performed along with directors Rodrigo Almeida and Kareem McCullough.
The music played varied from the early 1600s to the 1970s.
Jenny Hamilton, a Huntington local, said she and her husband love to come to the shows put on at the Jomie center.
“After all this snow we had, it was a relief to get out and see students doing what they love,” Hamilton said. “My husband loves to play the guitar, so this show was a real treat to watch him enjoy.”
Chase Mayo opened the show with a performance of Danza Mora, and each performer did one song by each.
Members of the guitar studio performed together along with their ensemble directors.
Taylor Radford, a Marshall student, said the show was a lot better than she had expected it to be.
“I came to this show thinking it would be just another thing to do for one of my classes,” Radford said. “It turns out that I knew two of the songs performed and I liked this show a lot.”
