Electric twist to classical

Guitarist Bradford Werner brings his unique combo style to the Metro Theatre

Contemporary classical music for the electric guitar sounds like an oxymoron, but local guitarist Bradford Werner will present just that this Friday (July 15) at the Metro Studio Theatre.

The evening of avant-garde, minimalist and rock-influenced classical guitar music will feature pieces by Canadian composers Scott Godin and Nicole Lizée, as well as rare songs, including Steve Rich’s “Electric Counterpoint.”

Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $10, available at the door (1411 Quadra St.) or in advance at Ditch Records, 784 Fort St.
