AIR DATE: April 12, 2012

Ricardo Cobo is one of the leading masters of classical guitar. Raised in Colombia as the son of Lebanese parents who loved classical music, he suspects he was first exposed to guitar "in the womb." He debuted on TV at the age of 17 to more than 9 million people. He currently chairs UNLV’s classical guitar department, and is founder and artistic director of the Guitar Las Vegas/Allegro Guitar Series, which is hosted at UNLV.
 
Ricardo Cobo talks about his rich international background, how it influences his playing and he also plays some of his music in our studios. He performs on April 11 at 8 p.m. at UNLV's Beam Music Center as part of the UNLV Classical Guitar Series.
