At this time of the year, card companies, candy manufacturers and florists convince us that all thoughts turn to love! Generally associated with the evening, we will enjoy a musical reflection devoted to the pleasure and passion of the Spanish guitar. We welcome John Akers, who will combine music of the classical guitar and guitar-inspired writings.
John Akers was born on the West Coast but spent his childhood in New York and then Switzerland. He is a descendent of land-grant Storey family of Upstate, SC. While at Middlebury College, in Vermont, he studied guitar. John completed his PhD in Spanish and Portuguese at UCLA. Throughout his career, he taught at the Webb School in California, Saint Mary’s College, Notre Dame, NC State and Wofford College – retiring after 25 years. Along with Billy Graham, John is a firm believer in the value of walking each golf round he plays!
