We are delighted to welcome Rodrigo Rodriguez for a time of honoring the Lord with music and testimony with this renowned guitarist.
Pastor Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa once said of him “The anointed guitar playing of Rodrigo Rodriguez brings a special dimension to worship, much like the harp of David must have brought. It is a joy to see such talent dedicated and used for the glory of the Lord.”
Mr. Rodriguez was born in Quito Ecuador, South America. Coming from a very musical family, he started playing guitar at the age of 9, recording his first LP at the age of 12. When he was 16, he started to travel the world to increase his knowledge in the instrument, performing in Venezuela, Spain, France, England and Damascus, Syria. In 1986, he was invited to teach classical guitar by Eastfield College in Mesquite Texas.
Rodrigo has recorded 16 CDs, one recorded with the City of Prague Philharmonic. He has performed at Carnegie (Recital Hall), and has been the Solo Guitarist for many US and international orchestras.
He has composed a concerto for guitar and chamber orchestra entitled “The Savior”, along with many other compositions for solo, duel, and trio guitar, flute and guitar, and voice and guitar.
He has made concert tours in Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Canada, Czech-Republic, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and throughout the United States.
In 1992, Rodrigo found a new direction in his life. He is now privileged to serve the Lord in full-time music ministry.
The concert is of course free to all, and we will be taking up a love offering for Mr. Rodriguez
