If you're a classical guitarist, it may be impossible to resist the pull of one iconic piece: the Concierto de Aranjuez by Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo.

Guitarist David Cohen: Healing And Helping Through Music

Guitarist David Cohen with Jill Pasternak, July, 2013

This week we feature a musician who has gone well beyond his role as an entertainer to become an active member of humanitarian causes he believes in. In an effort to fight hunger, David Cohen co-founded the Ocean Grove Music Arts Festival from which all proceeds go directly to the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties in New Jersey.  

He also initiated the website PhiladelphiaClassicalMusic.com to promote classical music in the area, and established PhiladelphiaGuitarNews.com with the same goal in targeting guitar players in Philadelphia.  

His newest album David Cohen: Guitar pays homage to his late wife, Tatyana, who recently lost her battle against ovarian cancer.  The CD is an intimate celebration of love and life and the brave battle she and so many other women have fought.  A portion of the proceeds of the album will support the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, where David assists in the development and implementation of patient and family- centered care philosophy and practices. Saturday, July 20, 11:30 am to 12 noon.

The sprinkling of recognizable time-worn tangos contrast perfectly with the excitement of the "nuevo" world of Astor Piazolla. Terrific!
