LEGENDARY FLAMENCO GUITARIST ESTEBAN TO APPEAR AT PABST THEATER

MILWAUKEE—Internationally acclaimed flamenco guitarist Esteban brings his passionate Latin music to the Pabst Theater 8 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 2.

Ticket prices range from $15 to $35 and can be ordered by calling 414-286-3663 or toll free 1-800-511-1552 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily or by visiting the Pabst Theater Box Office at 144 E. Wells Street in the Milwaukee Center, noon – 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 90 minutes before any Sunday event. Tickets are also available online anytime at www.pabsttheater.org or www.tickets.com and at all Sears stores.

Born in Pittsburgh, Esteban was named by his teacher and mentor, the greatest of all classical guitar masters, Andres Segovia, during Esteban's years of study with Segovia in Spain in the mid-70s. From the moment Esteban saw his first guitar in a shop window when he was eight years old and his uncle bought it for him, 'it never left my hands,' says the guitar virtuoso.

From that moment on, he focused on the guitar.

He taught himself to play and graduated in 1981 from Mellon University in Pittsburgh, majoring in classical guitar and English literature. After years of attempting to meet the master Segovia, he was finally permitted to play for him and Esteban finally achieved his dream of studying with Segovia.

In 1980, Esteban was hit by a drunk driver in a car accident and lost the use of his hands and could not play the guitar for 10 years. By 1990, through dedication and his love of music, he began again to play the guitar. Since then, he has made 13 CDs and two videos and is consistently on the top of the Billboard charts every month for album and video sales worldwide.

Esteban is one of a select few guitarists in the musical world who carry the coveted personal endorsement of the great Segovia. Esteban has toured the world and performed as a solo virtuoso guitarist, or with his band. He plays with a passion that can be felt deeply by the listener in both his live performances as well as his recordings. Esteban performs in concert more than 300 days per year. He has appeared on Entertainment Tonight and nationwide on PBS. He has been featured each month in a series of one-hour concerts at Home Shopping Network (HSN).

As Esteban puts it: 'Segovia taught me how to put emotion into my music. Now I can play from the heart.' Hear the passion in his heartfelt music Oct. 2 at the Pabst Theater.

The Pabst Theater, located in the heart of Milwaukee at 144 E. Wells Street, has raised its golden curtain on more than 25,000 performances. A treasure house of theater history, it is the fourth-oldest continuously operating theater on the same site in the U.S. Virtually every great name in 20th century music, dance, and drama has graced the Pabst Theater stage. With its 1895 splendor and charm undiminished, the intimate Pabst Theater now presents 200+ music, comedy, dance, and drama performances every year. See www.pabsttheater.org
