John Doan will present his acclaimed “Homage to Fernando Sor” program at 8 p.m. Feb. 27 at Marylhurst University’s Wiegand Hall.

Imagine stepping into a time machine with Dr. Who to experience the world that shaped the beginnings of the classical guitar and the life of its most revered player, Fernando Sor. That is what it may feel like as you hear the sounds of 200 years ago on period instruments that Sor would have known but are rarely if ever heard today followed by Doan’s inspired compositions that seem to unveil the meaning and feeling behind what Sor himself conveyed in his own musical language.

Doan guides the audience through an immersion experience by playing themes of Sor’s on one of the first guitars made in England in 1819, perhaps at the commission of Sor himself. In addition to the music, audience members can see the world as Sor would have through a multimedia presentation of period paintings.

Tickets are $30-$35 and can be purchased online at store.portlandclassicguitar.com/collections.
