  • Christian Science Church Haddonfield, NJ (map)

Haddonfield is proud to welcome home its own International touring artist. Benjamin Beirs!! “A new generation of classical guitarist is coming onto the music scene – and many are no longer new to the dogma of the Segovia era. One of those is the supremely talented Benjamin Beirs.”

(Sacramento Bee) Performing with “rounded, mellow tone, notably clean left-hand work, and sensitive phrasing,” (Washington Post) here is a guitarist-composer who seeks to present the guitar on his own terms, with “polished indie” CD’s and “intellectual, international” repertoire. (Buffalo News, Mr. Beirs currently lives and works in Paris while continuing his studies with renowned pedagogue Judicael Perroy. He is currently a faculty member of the American Conservatory of Paris and teaches privately. He also collaborates in France with Maud Laforest as classical guitar ensemble Duo. Recent appearances as a soloist or chamber musician include concerts in Washington, D.C. at the Kennedy Center; Dubai, U.A.E.; Vienna, Austria; Paris, France; and at the Philadelphia, Baltimore, Knoxville, San Jose, and New York classical guitar societies
