The Performing Arts Society presents Borealis Guitar Quartet, a guitar ensemble dedicated to performing guitar chamber music. Dr. Armin Abdihodzic, UAA guitar professor, heads the group of Anchorage musicians which includes Kiel Schweizer, Jang Ok Han, and Ryan Nitz-Maile. A description of the group is found on their website:!borealis-guitar-quartet/jt3kx

Their program will include several movements by Bach (a little fugue, Air, Sinfonia, and Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring) followed by Bizet’s Carmen Suite, 5 dances by Celso Machado (Brazil), a piece by Francis Kleynjans (France), a “loose” Canon (variations on Pachelbel’s canon) and a piece by Andrew York called “Lotus eaters.” It’s a little bit of everything and from everywhere, from Bach to modern American composers.
