Take the chill off of winter with the warm tones of classical guitar. Internationally acclaimed guitarist David Burgess will be featured in a "Fridays at Deere-Wiman" performance Feb. 8. Part of the Quad City Arts Visiting Artist Program, the Burgess concert will be held in an intimate setting at the historic Deere-Wiman House in Moline.

As a first place winner in New York City's Andrés Segovia Fellowship Competition, Burgess is well known for his mastery of traditional guitar styles, popular and folkloric types of music. He began his study of guitar at Estudio de Arte Guitarrístico in Mexico City, and has earned degrees from the University of Washington and the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Italy.

In the mid-1980s Burgess studied periodically with Spanish maestro Andrés Segovia. He has performed in leading concert halls throughout North and South America, including recent appearances with the Philharmonia Virtuosi of New York and the American Chamber Orchestra at the Kennedy Center.
