MIDWEST CITY, Oklahoma -- The Grammy award winning guitarist that founded the guitar program at Julliard in New York City will perform a one-night only concert in Oklahoma.

Sharon Isbin's performance will be Thursday, September 29, at 8:00 p.m. at the Performing Arts Theatre located on the campus of Rose State College.

Isbin will perform "Journey to the Amazon" with Paul Winter and Thiago de Mello in a specially priced performance. For only $15, any student from any school, college or educational establishment can attend the performance. All that's required is a student ID.

In 2001, Isbin became the first classical guitarist in 28 years to garner a Grammy Award. Isbin has won several Grammies and has received a host of nominations. She also has been in collaborations with world-class violinist Joshua Bell, devilish rock guitarist Steven Vai, folk singer/guitarist Joan Baez, Heart singer Nancy Wilson and Oklahoma guitar great Michael Hedges. She even did work for Martin Scorsese's Academy Award-winning "The Departed."

Isbin founded the guitar department at the renowned Julliard School in New York City.
