Champagne and classical guitar

A suggestion if you're looking for something fun to do this weekend, from the Emerson Resort & Spa in Mount Tremper:

The Phoenix Restaurant at the Emerson Resort and Spa will present classical guitarist and composer David Temple for a concert and champagne reception in its Great Room on Sunday, June 29. Temple’s performance, from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m., is open to both overnight guests and local residents. The $20 concert fee includes a champagne reception. Concert-goers who enjoy dinner at the Phoenix after the concert will have the price of their concert ticket deducted from the cost of their entrĂ©e. Advance reservations are suggested. 845-688-2828.

And I see in the Hudson Valley Connoisseur Guide to Events that the same artist -- David Temple -- will be performing Brazilian Aire: A Concert for the Classical Guitar at 8 p.m. on Wednesday July 2 at in Rhinebeck Center for Performing Arts. Compositions will include those by Villa-Lobos, Reis, Morel, Bonfa and more. Tickets are $18 for adults and $16 for seniors and children. Visit the Web site or call 845-876-3080 for ticket information.
