The Bolton Guitar Studies Program at the University of Arizona School of Music is pleased to announce the bestowal of an honorary doctoral degree on David Russell. This honor will be celebrated through several events during the University of Arizona 2014 May graduation.
One of the highlights of this celebration will be “David Russell: Musician, Scholar, Teacher and Humanitarian” – A Convocation of the University of Arizona School of Music, to be held at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, May 16, 2014 in Holsclaw Hall. This convocation and recital is a tribute to Maestro Russell’s accomplishments throughout his career and his tireless humanitarian work with the continuous support of his wife, María Jesús Rodríguez. The program for this event will include a wide range of pieces close to Maestro Russell’s heart interpreted by Bolton students and players from the community. They range from his arrangements of Scarlatti and Bach to his wonderful arrangements of Celtic music.
Because this honorary event will be held in the intimate setting of Holsclaw Hall, those wishing to attend should email Julia Pernet, chairman of the Tucson Guitar Society, at TucsonGS@gmail.com to reserve a seat. Those who have not registered will be admitted if space permits.
