Kirkland, WASH. – February 4, 2014 – Kirkland Performance Center welcomes Andre Feriante in a special Valentine’s Day performance on February 14, 2014 at 7:30. After over 20 years of performing and recording, award-winning virtuoso guitarist Andre Feriante has left his musical mark on the classical, world music and fusion scenes. His performance program represents a bold but fluid musical fusion, featuring music from Bach to Leonard Cohen, flamenco improvisation to jazz standards, and even poetry by Federico Garcia Lorca, Rumi and Feriante himself. Feriante has been offering this special concert at Benaroya Hall for many years, and now looks forward to offering it to the Eastside.
A seasoned, expressive performer whose style is as elegant as it is conversational, Feriante’s innovative and effortless sound appeals to any ear with a love and passion for music. He has dedicated his life to his art, and his ability to communicate through sound never fails to lead his audience on an emotional journey that is as deeply personal as it is universal.
Since moving to Seattle in the 1980s, Andre Feriante has established himself as a Northwest favorite, having performed throughout the Puget Sound area in public and private concerts for a virtual “Who’s Who of Seattle.” His music has been featured on “Hearts of Space,” the No. 2 music program on NPR. Feriante currently hosts “La Guitarra” on Classic KING FM 98.1, the Arts Channel. Feriante has played a wide variety of venues including The King Cat Theatre (where he opened for Olita Adams and David Benoit), The Frye Art Museum, The Paramount Theatre, and the Key Arena, where he performed the National Anthem for the Seattle Sonics. Feriante recently performed with the Northwest Symphony at Benaroya Hall with “Heart” and “Alice and Chains.
Feriante’s eleven albums have consistently charted within the top 10, and his album, Bohemian Boulevard, debuted at No. 1 on the world and ambient radio charts. It remained in the top 20 for five months and then went on to win “Best World Album” in the New Age Reporter’s 2006 Lifestyle Awards.
