Name: Carrizozo Music presents Todd Green
Date: February 14, 2019
Time: 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM MST
Event Description:
Carrizozo Music, Inc. and the New Mexico Humanities Council present Todd Green in a lecture and concert featuring instruments from Africa and the Middle East.  The event will take place on Thursday, February 14, at 5 pm at the Carrizozo School Gym.  Multi-Instrumentalist Todd Green performs original music on over 30 acoustic strings, flutes and percussion instruments from all over the world, inspired by many different cultures in the Middle East, Central Asia, Far East and South America.  His custom-built electronic system allows him to layer instruments as he performs, which in effect turns him into a high-tech one-man-band of World Music.  As Todd takes his audience on a fascinating tour of many countries and their diverse styles of music, he intersperses his playing with entertaining and informative explanations of the music and the instruments.  Todd's artistic mission is to "help bring down the barriers that divide us by experiencing other cultures through their music." 

At 3 pm in the Old Gym, Todd will present a concert for Carrizozo School students.  All events are free and open to the general public. 

Todd Green began studying guitar at the age of ten.  He has been writing and performing his own music professionally since the age of fifteen.  He studied composition and arrangement at Berklee College in Boston, Mass.  At the same time he was studying privately with Mark Goodrich, jazz guitar legend at New England Conservatory of Music; Pat Metheny, Grammy Awards winning guitarist; and George Benson, international recording star.  After spending five years in Boston, he moved to New York City where he performed with the top echelon of studio musicians and toured with bands throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.

While in New York, he began studying Western Flute, East Indian Bansuri Bamboo Flute (with Steve Gorn), and Tablas (Indian hand drums) with Ray Spiegel.  He now lives in Northern Nevada near Lake Tahoe.  Todd performs nationally as a multi-instrumental solo artist in the college and fine arts markets.  Frequently, along with his concerts, Todd conducts college master classes and interactive school clinics and assemblies.  His columns on improvisation have been published in Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine.
