Okay people, we live in Lincoln County, itâ€™s not everyday an award winning, cute as a button, classical guitarist comes to town. When he does, we should take note.
For that reason, Iâ€™m reminding you of the Robert Belinicâ€™s performance, which will take place this Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Lincoln Cultural Center.
Did I mention he was European? And young? What about cute as a button? Has that come up yet?
Of course, heâ€™s also won many very impressive and very European prizes such as first prize at the Young Concert Artists International Audtions, the Fergus New Artist Prize for Young Concert Artists and the Bercasa Foundation Prize for an appearance at the Montpellier Radio-France Festival.
Seats to his performance are quite coveted, and 318 of them will be reserved for members of the LCAA. So, if youâ€™re a member, then lucky you. If youâ€™re not a member, some not-so-lucky LCAA member might miss the concert, and you could end up with a seat.
Donâ€™t forget, this is high class stuff. There will be no â€œKumbayah my Lordâ€ or emphatic strumming. Only the best in classical guitar.
