Ulisses Rocha is recognized as one of the leading solo guitarists of our time. Born in Rio de Jeneiro, Ulisses became interested in classical guitar, as well as jazz and Brazilian popular music. His extensive career as a teacher, composer and performer has brought him to many stages and learning centers worldwide.
Having performed at some of the most popular music festivals in Brazil, Ulisses has shared the stage with the likes of Al Di Meola, Egberto Gismonti, Paulo Belinatti, and Marco Pereira to name a few.
As a recording artist, Ulisses has countless CDs released under his name, and his music can also be found on the widely viewed platform YouTube.
Ulisses’ contributions to the world of solo guitar and music education are felt worldwide, but we have the privilege and the honor of experiencing his music, one night only, at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Exeter.
Local solo guitarist and Berklee College of Music alum Scott Ouellette will open the concert with original music from his recently released CD “Sunrise”, along with new arrangements of popular music and Broadway songs. With over 30 years performing experience, Scott has performed at some of the most high profile venues in the Boston area, as well as television and on the Internet.
Scott’s music is currently being performed by guitarists around the globe, but is also being recognized by performers of piano and harp. Scott’s style of playing ranges from bossa to ballads, Latin-American to classical and jazz.
