Classical Guitarist Dr. Luther Enloe to Perform at Young Harris College

YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. – Young Harris College’s Division of Fine Arts will present a special performance by classical guitarist Luther Enloe, D.M.A., as part of the “Sutherland Concert Series” Sunday, Nov. 6, at 3 p.m. in Susan B. Harris Chapel on the Young Harris College campus. The concert is free and open to the public.

Dr. Enloe will perform a variety of classical guitar arrangements, including Gaspar Sanz’s Suite Española, Isaac Albéniz’s Asturias and Fernando Sor’s Introduction and Variations on a Theme of Mozart Op. 9. He will also perform an assortment of pieces by Felix Mendelssohn, transcribed for the guitar by the 19th-century Spanish composer and guitarist Francisco Tárrega. 

Dr. Enloe is noted for his resonant sound quality, lyrical phrasing andtechnical finesse. He earned his master of music and doctor of musical arts degrees from the University of Georgia under the guidance of John Sutherland and David Starkweather.

An active recitalist, recording artist and clinician, Dr. Enloe has recorded for Sonic Grapefruit Records and performed as a guitar soloist with many ensembles including the Montana State University Chorale, the Dekalb Choral Guild and Peachtree Symphonic Winds.

Dr. Enloe currently serves on the faculty of Berry College in Rome, Ga., where he maintains a thriving guitar studio in addition to teaching music courses. He recently served as an advisor in the development of performance standards for middle and high school guitar classes for the Georgia Department of Education and Georgia Music Educators Association.

The “Sutherland Concert Series” at Young Harris College was established in honor of world-renowned guitar instructor John Sutherland and his legacy of educational and artistic excellence. Described by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution as the “Dean of Guitarists,” Sutherland was responsible for initiating numerous guitar programs in the state, including those at the University of Georgia, Georgia State University, Dekalb College and Columbus State University.
