Hot Ticket: Tantalizing classical guitar

Published June 29, 2006

Made up of four classical guitarists from Florida State University's doctoral guitar program, Tantalus Quartet plays a wide range of music, from an arrangement of the overture to Mozart's Don Giovanni and Brahms' Hungarian Dances to contemporary works by Alan Scott (City Songs) and Jaime Zenamon (Contrastes). The group includes, from left, Matthew Cochran, Kevin Manderville, Kristian Anderson and Stephen Mattingly.

Tantalus makes its Tampa Bay area debut at the UU Dome, usually a venue for bluegrass and folk but an occasional presenter of classical performers.

The concert is at 8 tonight at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 11400 Morris Bridge Road, Tampa. $10. (813) 988-8188; and
