CAM was thrilled to present the guitar artistry of Jordan Dodson. It was unfortunate that Charlotte Mundy could not perform as planned, but Jordan did an outstanding job of putting together a complete solo guitar recital at the very last minute. He is extraordinarily talented. Watch Jordan perform Eleanor Rigby HERE.
We hope that you enjoyed the interlude performance of young Vahn Kessler, a student of Dan Corr at the Suzuki Music School of Westport. The Master Class given by Jordan after the reception gave Vahn and a fellow student incredibly valuable insight into public music performance skills and nuanced guitar technique that added a new dimension to the music that they had prepared for the class.
