Finger Lakes Guitar Quartet

The Finger Lakes Guitar Quartet – featuring Joel Brown, Brett Grigsby, Sten Isachsen and Paul Quigley – will draw from its eclectic repertoire that spans five centuries for a virtual concert at noon on Thursday, April 8. The hour-long program is presented by Hudson Valley Community College’s Cultural Affairs Program. Please visit to register for access to the live-stream event. This program is free to the public.

The Finger Lakes Guitar Quartet has performed at the Eastman School of Music, Ithaca College Guitar Festival, Keuka College, Utica College, Sandisfield Arts Center in the Berkshires, and the Cleveland Guitar Society and Marietta College in Ohio. Individually, the quartet’s members have performance, collaboration and recording credits too numerous to list.

Each FLGQ member is an accomplished soloist who also teaches. Joel Brown is a senior artist-in-residence at Skidmore College. Brett Grigsby is a member of the music faculty at Skidmore College, in addition to teaching one-on-one and coaching several guitar ensembles. Sten Isachsen directs SUNY Schenectady’s undergraduate Music Audio Technology programs and its Guitar Performance program. Paul Quigley is a faculty member at both SUNY Schenectady and SUNY Adirondack, where he teaches classical and electric guitar.
