The Watchung Arts Center’s “Classicals at the Circle” series will feature Nyack College NYC School of Music alumnus Carlos Cuestas, guitarist of The Cline/Cuestas Duo, in concert on Saturday, April 22 at 8:00 p.m. The Center is located at 18 Stirling Rd, Watchung, NJ. Advance tickets are $16 online and $20 at the door.
Cuestas, a Bachelor of Music cum laude graduate who majored in instrumental performance, is also a member of the music faculty at Nyack NYC School of Music and at Brooklyn College. He teaches guitar, music history and world music. Currently he is pursuing a doctorate in ethnomusicology at The Graduate Center at the City University of New York. Carlos played the theorbo at the Nyack School of Music’s concert at David Geffen Hall, Lincoln Center earlier this month.
In October 2016, Cuestas and flutist Jenny Cline released their first CD, “Facets.” (Listen here.) Classical music audiences have been hearing their work on radio stations and in live performances across the United States and in Canada.
