EAU CLAIRE — Michael Hauser, "one of America's few masters of the emotional flamenco guitar" (Mpls.St.Paul Magazine), will open the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Summer Events series for the week of June 23.

Hauser's free outdoor show will begin at 7 p.m. on the Central Campus Mall (rain site is The Cabin, Davies Center). The audience is invited to bring lawn chairs, blankets and a picnic to the concert, which is free and open to the public. Free popcorn will be available.

One of only a handful of flamenco guitar masters residing in the United States today, Hauser has studied with a number of Spain's greatest flamenco guitarists, including Luis Maravilla, Niño Ricardo, Juan Maya "Marote" and Justo de Badajoz. He also studied classical guitar with Andrés Segovia's protégé Jesus Silva. Hauser's concerts combine flamenco guitar solos inspired by the great flamenco legends with his own original compositions and classical works by composers such as J.S. Bach, Isaac Albéniz and Enrique Granados.

The Summer Events series also will present Jazz at Noon concerts Monday through Friday, June 23-27, on the Central Campus Mall. Groups featuring UW-Eau Claire student and alumni musicians will perform under the direction of UW-Eau Claire graduate Steven Hobert. The 60-minute shows will feature music ranging from jazz standards to improvisation. A variety of grilled lunch items will be sold.

With the theme "Welcome to Our Backyard," University Centers Summer Events continue through July 31. A complete schedule is available at the Service Center, 715-836-3727, or online.

The eight-week series is funded by UW-Eau Claire students and coordinated by the University Centers. For more information contact Paula Stuettgen, senior coordinator for assessment and special projects, at 715-836-4803.
