 Zane Forshee, a classical guitarist and Fulbright Scholar, will perform a concert in honor of Valentine’s Day, at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 12, at the East Bank Regional Library, 4747 W. Napoleon, Metairie.

This event is free of charge and is open to the public. There is no registration.

Forshee has won top prizes such as the Montpelier Artist Recital Competition and the first prize in the National Guitar Workshop International Solo Guitar Competition. He has performed at the Palacete de Amezúa (Madrid), the Joseph Joachim Konzertsaal (Berlin), the Library of Congress (Washington, D.C.), the New York City Classical Guitar Society, and the Chimei Museum (Taiwan).

Forshee serves on the guitar faculty of the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University. He is also chair of the Guitar and Harp Department of the Peabody Preparatory. Additionally, Forshee directs Peabody’s annual Fret Fest, Summer Guitar Intensive, and was most recently awarded the Excellence in Teaching Award for his work within the Preparatory.

Last year, Forshee released a recording of Judah Adashi’s my heart comes undone for electric guitar and loop pedal. On the heels of this latest recording, Forshee launched his second full-length album, recorded in Berlin, on the Artist’s Recording Collective label. The new album traces the evolution of 20th century Valencian composers and draws upon Forshee’s research gathered while living in Spain.
