A Concert to benefit FUEL For Students 

John Muratore will perform on Friday evening, November 16th at 7:30pm at the Church of the Redeemer.

John Muratore's solo, ensemble and concerto performances have been a part of the Boston and international musical landscape for the past 30 years. The Boston Globe has described him as "a fleet-fingered and musicianly performer whose playing unleashes so many different varieties of tone and color in quick succession...a kind of aural iridescence." His live performances and recordings have been featured on NPR and on Boston's Classical 99.5 (WGBH/CRB). The program will display the diversity of the guitar repertoire with its many influences, from traditional Classical, Spanish, Latin American, to  jazz and folk, with works by Sor, Tárrega, Villa-Lobos, Piazzolla, Barrios, Bertoncini and more.

There will be a goodwill offering which will go towards the purchase of weekend food for Newton's school children.

FUEL is a community partnership between the Church of the Redeemer and the Centre Street Food Pantry which provides weekend food to needy children in the Newton public schools. Redeemer parishioners purchase the food, and each week 6-10 of us gather in the Undercroft to pack about 35 backpacks and 4 others deliver the backpacks to the Newton schools.
