Event Details

The Finger Lakes Guitar Quartet is the union of four veteran guitarists, Joel Brown, Sten Isachsen, Brett Grigsby and Paul Quigley.  The group’s repertoire spans several centuries and includes music that was written for and premiered by them.  FLGQ recently appeared with the (Grammy Award-winning) Albany Symphony  in the world premiere of Evan Mack’s Forever Wild for Guitar Quartet and Orchestra.  They have performed for the Cleveland Classical Guitar Society, the Great Lakes Guitar Society, for the Mid-Hudson Valley Guitar Society, at the Hudson Valley Community College Guitar Festival, for the Upstate New York Classical Guitar Society, as well as numerous colleges, festivals, and performing arts venues.

Some fun facts about these four versatile musicians: Brett has performed solo at New York City's St. Patrick's Cathedral; Sten is a regular fixture with the bluegrass great Jim Gaudet and the Railroad Boys; Joel played at Carnegie Hall, where he appeared with the famed opera singer, Dawn Upshaw; and Paul has been a featured performer on the Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary, and Crystal Symphony cruise ships. 

Come see why FLGQ is a group not to be missed!
