     HAMMOND – The Southeastern Guitar Ensemble, directed by Instructor Patrick Kerber, will perform its fall concert on Dec.1, at 7:30 p.m. in Pottle Auditorium.
     The free program will feature music for guitar duo, guitar trio, guitar with trumpet, two guitars and voice, and the full ensemble of 10 guitars.
     “This will be a typical guitar ensemble concert that will present music in fairly atypical formats,” Kerber said. “It will be a ‘something for everyone’ program with music from the German Renaissance, to the Spanish Romantic repertoire, to arrangements of South American folk songs, Central American guitar music, and American jazz.”  
     The concert will feature guest artists Austin Dugas-Higdon on trumpet, who will perform Ray Noble’s jazz standard “Cherokee” with guitarist Ken Turner. Soprano Stephanie Arledge will perform two Spanish art songs: Enrique Granados’ “El tra la la,” and Manuel de Falla’s “Asturiana” with guitarists Blake Guidry and Brandi Callais. The songs were arranged for Blake Guidry.
