Featured Musician: Carlos Tenorio

A first at the Frame of Mind, but something we hope to continue is to host a musician to play live during our openings. We'd love to introduce Carlos to you, we first found him at the downtown Monroe art crawl. Carlos is a multifaceted and multi-instrumentalist self-taught musician. Born and raised in Venezuela, his composition style range from genres such as heavy and progressive metal to music for classical guitar and string ensemble.

Curiosity and a constant search for improvement, led him to start learning classical guitar by himself guided by his father.  Despite the fact that he never studied music formally, Carlos has composed music for electric guitar, classical guitar and string ensemble. 

Among his most significant musical career achievements, the following are worthy of being mentioned: In 2008, Ensamble Strauss (Venezuela) recorded an arrangement for string ensemble of his classical guitar work, Cronos.  In 2012, Carlos saw released in Mexico another of his compositions for classical guitar "Joropeando" by maestro José Suárez.  Additionally, between 2013 and 2015, three of his compositions for guitar “En Mis Sueños”, “Joropeando” and “Namarië” were played in the Goddard College Community Radio 91.1 FM  Plainfield, VT. In 2014 he finally release his first album titled Cronos.

Besides the Monroe crawl, he has played recently for KEDM's Annual Lunch and Louisiana Tech's Performing Arts Summer Series. Check this out for a sample of his work.
