Ryke Acker

Ryan de Ryke & Brandon J. Acker

Classical CD Release Concert

“Franz Schubert: A Wanderer’s Guitar” is a recording collaboration between world-class, Chicago-based artists Ryan de Ryke (baritone) and Brandon J. Acker (guitarist). This unique, extraordinary pairing explores the once common 19th century practice in Vienna of performing Schubert Lieder with guitar instead of piano. The physical beauty and intimacy of The Ethical Humanist Society listening room invoke the ideal atmosphere for this project, inspired by European salon culture of the 18th and 19th centuries. The venue compliments perfectly the dynamic performances for which Ryan and Brandon have garnered great acclaim, removing all barriers between audience and artist.

$8 - $12 suggested donation includes refreshments. No reservations needed.
