Introducing Classical Guitarist EstevÃ£o Devides
Join us on Sunday 16 July for free classical and jazz performances on Tuesday Market Place from 11am to 3.30pm.
One of the performers we have selected is King's Lynn-based classical guitarist Estevão Devides.
Born in Brazil, Estevão began studying the guitar at the age of 9 and studied at the Conservatory of Tatuí in Brazil, graduating in a Licentiate of Music Degree from the Unimes University of Santos.
In Brazil he has performed in schools, theatres and museums sponsored by companies in partnership with the Government of Culture. This financed his first recording of a CD in 2014 with 25,000 free copies that were distributed to students during his school performances.
He has a wide repertoire which he will showcase in his 45-minute set on the new stage at the Tuesday Market Place from around midday - so if you like your music from Beethoven to The Beatles then come along next Sunday!
He has participated in International Guitar Encounters, performing master classes with renowned guitarists such as: Berta Rojas (Paraguay); Jorge Caballero (Peru) and Duo Assad (Brazil).
In 2013, the Brazilian Ministry of Culture selected Estevão to be part of a Cultural Exchenge which included free concerts at Whitefriars C of E Primary Academy, Snettisham Primary School and Forward Day Centre in King's Lynn.
