Wayne Rowand will perform at the next Randolph County Community Arts Center's free monthly Brown Bag Concert, beginning Wednesday at noon.
With almost 30 years of experience, Morgantown native Wayne Rowand has spent the greater part of his life in the pursuit of music.
Known primarily as a classical guitarist, Rowand also has received training in jazz and improvised music. His principal teachers include eight-string guitar pioneer David Harris and Scott Elliott. He also has attended classes and master classes with notable guitarists Thomas Kitka, Ken Karsh, Manuel Cuen, David Burgess, Peter Fletcher, Dr. Patrick Joyce and Stephen Aron. Rowand has extensive performing credits on a regional and national level, both as a soloist and an ensemble player.
Currently he spends his time teaching both private lessons and classes at the Arts Center, performing and spoiling his two young children, Chloe and Finn.
The Randolph County Community Arts Center, a nonprofit organization promoting and supporting the arts in Randolph County and surrounding areas, is located at the corner of Randolph Avenue and Park Street in Elkins. The RCCAC is supported by private donations as well as by the West Virginia Division of Culture and History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.
The Brown Bag Concert Series is sponsored by Davis Trust Co.
