The trio was formed in 2011 by local classical guitar players Allan Yzereef, Keenan Comartin and Matthew Gould.
It made its international concert debut in 2013 in the United States followed by performances in Amsterdam, the SoundSCAPE Music Festival in Maccagno, Italy and the Festival di Bellagio in the Northern town of Bellagio, Italy.
At Guitars Alive, the trio will perform a commissioned work by Brian Hulse, professor of music composition at William and Mary University in Virginia, who will attend this world premiere.
Opening acts feature the Sudbury Guitar Orchestra and guitar ensembles from Lockerby Composite School, Lasalle Secondary School, Sudbury Secondary School, St. Charles College, St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School, Chelmsford Public School and Levack Public School.
Nine-year-old Gillian Zerwer and 13-year-old Remi Fortin will perform solos.
Since its inception in 2002, Guitars Alive has awarded more than $14,000 in scholarships, grants and donations to local high school, college and university students, as well as the Kiwanis Music Festival.
In 2013, Guitars Alive Sudbury, along with the Joan Mantle Music Trust, helped Lockerby Composite School purchase guitars for its new guitar program.
It also helped Cambrian College purchase special orchestral guitars for the Sudbury Guitar Orchestra.
Tickets to the event, which begins at 7 p.m. at the Cambrian College Amphitheatre, cost $20 each.
They're available at the door and at Cosmic Dave’s, Dupont’s Guitar Emporium, Guitar Clinic, Jett Landry Music, and Prom Music Centre. Seating is limited.
