Solo Solal


Though women (Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi, and Nancy Wilson, to name a few) have made significant inroads over the years, the arena of electric guitar is still dominated by male players. Acoustic is a different tune -- in fact, many of the world’s premier classical guitarists are female. Count France’s Gaëlle Solal among them. Solal, a native of Marseilles, is a much-lauded young musician who has toured around the world, playing in more than 30 countries. Tonight, though, she makes her St. Louis debut at 8 p.m. at the Ethical Society (9001 Clayton Road, Richmond Heights; 314-991-0955) as a guest of the St. Louis Classical Guitar Society. Have you ever heard a classical guitar recital at this venue?

Tickets are $20 to $24 and are available at
