Grand Rapids Community College alumnus, guitarist Gideon Whitehead will be the featured GRCC International Guitar Series performer on February 20, 2014. Noted by Cleveland Classical for his ability to “bring out subtle inner details” and to “communicate directly with the listener”, he is quickly establishing himself as an outstanding and captivating artist. In June 2013, he celebrated the release of his debut album Russian Romance featuring rarely-played classical guitar music from Russia. Gideon has performed solo recitals for the Cleveland Classical Guitar Society, the Guitar Society of Michigan, the Sturgis Council of the Arts (Sturgis, MI), the Louisville Guitar Society (Louisville, KY) and Hope College (Holland, MI) among others. In 2012, he made his New York City debut in a concert at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. As a chamber musician, Gideon has had the honor of collaborating on numerous occasions with world-renowned violinist and Philadelphia Orchestra Concertmaster David Kim. Since beginning his studies at the Curtis Institute of Music in 2012, Gideon has premiered two works for guitar and string quartet, along with works for solo guitar, guitar and violin, and a song cycle for soprano and guitar. In addition, he has appeared in chamber music performances for the Cleveland Classical Guitar Society, the Stars in the Classics series in Cleveland, Ohio, and at Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, PA. Gideon has earned prizes at the 2011 James Stroud Guitar Competition and the 2010 and 2011 University of Louisville International Guitar Competition.

The concert will be held in the Recital Hall (Room 200) of the Grand Rapids Community College Music Center at the corner of Ransom and Lyon.
