Multi-cultural instrumentalist coming to Guthrie County

Multi-instrumentalist Todd Green will perform on instruments from around the world Saturday, Sept. 30, at 7 pm at the Adair-Casey/Guthrie Center high school auditorium in Guthrie Center. He is hosted by the Guthrie County Arts Council.

Todd Green

Green performs original music on more than 30 string, flute and percussion instruments from all over the globe. His concert will be enhanced by three five-channel loopers that allow him to layer many instruments for his trademark “solo-ensemble” performance.

While in Guthrie County, Green will present four 60-minute school programs, a lecture demonstration, and the Saturday public performance. His school programs will be at A-C/GC and Panorama.  The public lecture is slated for Tuesday, Sept. 26, at 7 pm at the Saints Center for Culture and the Arts in Stuart. Sophia S. Ahmad of Des Moines will be moderator. She is currently vice president of public relations for the Greater Des Moines Partnership and is a professionally trained classical pianist with a master of music degree from Eastman School of Music.

The Saturday evening concert will be preceded by a quiet, strings-only prelude at 6:30 pm. Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, and $5 for youth unless accompanied by an adult. Admission fees will contribute to the Guthrie County Arts Council’s matching funds for the grant that is allowing his performance.

Support for “A World of Music with Todd Green” is provided by the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Additionally, this presentation is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Iowa Arts Council and the Crane Group.
