Join us for an evening of Amazing Classical Guitar with Master Musician - Leon Atkinson
Leon attended The High School of Performing Arts in New York City. There he met and performed with poet Langston Hughes. While at the School of Performing Arts, he played regularly at Greenwich Village coffee houses. Leon went on to study with Andres Segovia and attend the Manhattan School of Music. He holds degrees from The School of Performing Arts and The International Course of Music, Santiago de Campostela, Spain. Leon's musical journey has taken him around the world, allowing him to share the stage with the likes of Ron Carter, Mary Lou Williams and The Alvin Ailey Ballet to name a few. In 1974 he debuted at Town Hall and the following year he played Carnegie Hall. Leon is host of the popular "Friends of the Guitar Hour" on Spokane Public Radio, he brings guitarists from around the world to perform at the Jacklin Arts Center and now we are fortunate to have him play for us.
