The Church is excited to announce a performance by the Gil Gutiérrez Trio on Saturday, May 28th at 6:30pm. The ultra-talented group includes renowned virtuoso guitarist and composer, Gil Gutiérrez, violinist Robert Stern and bassist David Rodriguez, who will join forces for a set of high-level improvising during their performance.
Known for his unique ability to connect with the audience and channeling the local energy into their performance, Gil Gutiérrez Trio will be a concert that people do not want to miss.
Gil Gutiérrez, a native of Oaxaca, Mexico, is a classically trained composer with a mastery of jazz, flamenco, and son Cubano and known for his many performances with famed trumpeter Doc Severinsen, who discovered Gutiérrez playing in a restaurant.
The two would go on to collaborate in a group known as San Miguel Five, which performed at more than 60 concert venues worldwide — appearing at The Kennedy Center, the Mexican Cultural Institute of the Mexican Embassy in Washington D.C., and New York City’s Carnegie Hall. Gutiérrez is known as one of Mexico’s finest musicians and has an avid following throughout Latin America, America, and Spain for his various works and performances.
Gutiérrez created original compositions with the New York Choral Society and scored several films including El Cochero, El Alcazar de Chapultepec and Una Causa Noble. Gutiérrez composed and performed the soundtrack for the documentary film, Lost and Found in Mexico and was featured in the National Geographic Traveler Documentary The Granny Diaries.
