Adam del Monte, with special guests Sonia Olla and Ismael Fernandez
Known for the introspective lyricism of his classical guitar style as well as the exuberant spontaneity of his flamenco repertoire, Adam del Monte delights and moves audiences with his mastery of both art forms. Joining del Monte for his afternoon program will be the flamenco dancer and choreographer Sonia Olla (described by the New York Times as ?a furnace of earthy sensuality?) and her partner, the Seville-born cantadore Ismael Fernandez.
