ADA — In celebration of the National Arts and Humanities Month, the Ada Arts Council is hosting a concert by internationally known Native American guitarist Brad Richter at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 26, at the Dorothy I. Summers Theatre.

General admission to the concert will be $5 at the door. Tickets will be mailed to Ada Arts Council members, but those who need more than their level of membership provides may purchase more tickets at the door.

Richter’s music tells stories and paints pictures into sonorities and textures one might think were being created by a small orchestra rather than a single guitar. His command of the classical guitar as well as his charismatic stage presence have made him a favorite with audiences worldwide.

He began teaching himself to play guitar and compose at age 12, but at age 18 — with no formal musical training — he was awarded the Presidential Scholarship to the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago. The Conservatory is where he began performing, composing and teaching professionally. His concert programs are constantly evolving as he reworks existing material and composes new pieces to be included.

Richter’s critically acclaimed new CD, A Whisper in the Desert, is now available from Acoustic Music Records.
