Guitarist Benjamin Pila will take you on a journey from his rock ‘n’ roll roots to his classical guitar training.
Pila is the only classical guitarist ever named a Presidential Scholar in the Arts. He’s performed extensively throughout the United States and has been a featured artist at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and Lincoln Center, Washington, D.C.’s John F. Kennedy Center, and San Francisco’s Herbst Theater.
Pila is a semi-regular performer at the 9/11 Memorial Museum where he’s performed for Pope Francis, Barack Obama and George W. Bush. He’s also shared the stage with such notables as James Taylor, Paul Simon, Itzhak Pearlman, and Yo-Yo Ma. Pila’s debut CD, Commemoration, is a tribute to the survivors and victims of 9/11. READ MORE
