Petrichor guitar duo is named for the “pleasant aroma that accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather.” Guitarists John Oeth and Andrew Smith bring expertise and chemistry to recently composed music and works written specifically for them. Petrichor features these cutting-edge compositions alongside spur-of-the-moment improvisations. They have recently performed on the concert series of arts organizations such as the Phoenix Guitar Society, Oh My Ears, and Spirit of the Senses. Successful concerts in Phoenix for the Tempe Arts Center, Musical Instrument Museum, and the David Lloyd Wright House have built up Petrichor Duo’s reputation for making sophisticated art music accessible to audiences of all musical backgrounds.
Following the concert of guitar music will be a soiree to remember: an art reception featuring work of local visual artists and a Pinnacle Premiere of musical pieces specifically inspired by selected art pieces from the show, composed by Arizona composer and Pinnacle’s own Michael Hegeman. These new pieces will be performed by Pinnacle bassoonist, Chip King.
