Loyola student Patrick Convery plays classical and jazz guitar at a recent Tune In Tuesday concert at the School of Communication.

The School of Communication continues its student music series this fall with Tune In Tuesdays in the Convergence Studio. This fall’s first performer was classical and jazz guitarist Patrick Convery, who played on Nov. 2.

 Convery, a Loyola senior who studies Music and History played a set list that included Estudio, Lagrima, and Adelita by Francesco Tárrega; Waltz in E by Fernando Sor; Humoresque by Agustin Barrios Mangoré; Milonga and Bambuco by Jorge Cardoso; the performer’s own Prelude in A; and Greensleeves, Traditional.

In addition to his solo work, Convery also has performed in guitar duos, guitar quartets, and several Jazz Combos and Ensembles where he exchanges the six-string for a double bass. He loves Miles Davis and Weather Report, and is particularly inspired by modern Latin American composer Jorge Cardoso, whose work combines influences from Indigenous, African, Spanish and Portuguese music and dance.

Convery will be playing Leo Brouwer's Cuban Landscape with Rain as a part of a classical guitar quartet at the Chamber Ensembles and Symphony Orchestra Concert on December 10. The concert is open to the public and can be attended live by clicking here or virtually by clicking here.

Upcoming Tune In Tuesday performances will be held in person in the SOC Convergence Studio at 3 p.m. They include:

  • Nov. 16: Will Motto a.k.a. Slow Heat. Slow Heat songs combine honest indie folk songwriting with elements of shoegaze, post-rock, and electronic music.
  • Nov. 30: Elizabeth Swan—an indie/folk singer/songwriter who has performed all over the country and internationally.
