First Saturday at the Plympton Public Library brought many patrons to hear a classical guitar performance by Glorianne Collver-Jacobson, a recent Plympton transplant, whose considerable education in music entertained many at the library for more than an hour.
Collver-Jacobson grew up in California and received her B.A. in music from the University of California, Berkley. She took her junior year abroad in France, and summer in Spain.
Her classical guitar studies began when she was 14 and continued in Barcelona, Spain with Renata Tarrago. She took international Master Classes with Julian Bream, Antonio Laro, Alirio Diaz and Manuel Barrueco, augmenting her training. She also studied lute with Eugen Dombois and Hopkinson Smith at the Schola Cantorum Basilliensis in Basel, Switzerland.
Glorianne lived in Europe for some time, continuing her studies in music and also teaching.
After returning to the United States, she and her husband moved to New England in the 1980s, and moved to Plympton last July.
She has performed in concert in Europe and the United States, both as soloist and with other artists.
Glorianne is a Senior Music Performance Faculty at Wellesley College teaching guitar and lute, and coaches ensembles for the Mather Chamber Music Program at Harvard University.
She promises to keep us informed of other concerts planned in the area.
