CHAPLIN- The Hampton Recreation Commission is proud to present one of the world’s most exciting guitar orchestras, in a concert on Nov. 8 at the Parish Hill Middle/Senior High School, 304 Parish Hill Rd. in Chaplin. The Happy Valley Guitar Orchestra, based in Northampton, Mass., has been thrilling audiences with its exciting blend of electric, acoustic, classical, and bass guitars. The Happy Valley Guitar Orchestra is a grass roots, avant-garde ensemble of 20 + acoustic, and electric guitarists from diverse backgrounds. HVGO was founded in 2008 by guitar-innovator Peter Blanchette (archguitar.com), and has been a run-away success, winning awards for its debut CD. HVGO has been packing venues from classical music halls to rock clubs to outdoor shows at farmers’ markets! Visit the website to hear samples of their work: http://hvgo.org/ The musicians will be visiting both Hampton Elementary School and Parish Hill H.S. earlier Friday morning to demonstrate their instruments, talk about their work, and perform for the students.
