MARIETTA, OH (March 28, 2017) — The Evergreen Arts & Humanities Series at Washington State Community College (WSCC) in collaboration with the Schwendeman Agency, Inc. and the Marietta Community Foundation announce an upcoming presentation of "Spring Tales: An Evening of Guitar Music” with Júlio Ribeiro Alves.

Dr. Alves will perform on Saturday, April 8, 2017, at 7:30 p.m. in the Graham Auditorium on the campus of Washington State Community College. He will be joined by local performers, David Puls on violin, and Cynthia Puls on cello. Admission to the concert is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required, but seating is limited and is on a first come, first served basis.

A Marshall University School of Music faculty member, Dr. Alves holds a Doctor of Music degree in Guitar Performance and Music Literature from Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, a Master of Music degree in Guitar Performance from the Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins University, and a Bachelor of Music degree in Guitar Performance from the University of Brasília (UnB), in his native country, Brazil.

At Marshall, Dr. Alves is responsible for overseeing the guitar area teaching applied lessons, guitar literature, guitar pedagogy, guitar techniques, fretboard harmony, and directing the M.U. Guitar Ensemble. Outside of the guitar area, he also teaches music styles, music theory, and aural skills. He regularly performs as a solo player, as a member of the Violauta Duo, the Duo Alves, the Violautalino Trio, and in other chamber music settings. His programs feature music from various ethnicities and historical periods. He has performed in diverse venues in countries such as Brazil, USA, Costa Rica, Spain, and Italy.

Dr. Alves shared his love for music by saying, “To me, music is meant to be shared. The act of performing always amazes me: the same time in which it totally exposes my human condition in front of an audience it also enables me to express a multitude of emotions by channeling the energy ignited by the adrenaline into a game of enjoyment and fulfillment through sounds and silences. Above all…to play is fun.”
