Christopher Wilke, Baroque lute
Presented by Columbus Guitar Society
Christopher Wilke developed a love for music early in life. He went on to study guitar and composition at the College of Mt. St. Joseph and University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music. Most recently, he was a protégé of renowned lutenist Paul O'Dette at the Eastman School of Music. Several of Wilke's compositions have been published by Les Productions d'Oz in Montreal. His recordings have been featured on international radio including NPR's Sunday Morning Baroque. In addition to performances in Europe and North America, he has been a recent regular in continuo with our own Columbus Symphony Orchestra. 25 January 2014 welcomes Chris' triumphant return to our stage as a soloist.
