Information from artist's website on 02/12/2013 Edgar Cruz—Courtesy photo Edgar Cruz—Courtesy photo Goodwell, Okla.—Guitarist extraordinaire Edgar Cruz will perform on the Oklahoma Panhandle State University campus in Hughes-Strong Hall's Centennial Theatre on Thursday, Feb. 28, at 7:30 p.m. and the public is invited to attend.

Those who have witnessed Cruz's performance immediately become entranced at the precision, speed and complexity with which his fingers strike the strings of his guitar to create a symphony of sound unusual to just one instrument. Cruz offers an incredible live repertoire of the greatest hits of the guitar, such as "Malagueña," "Classical Gas," "Bohemian Rhapsody," "In the Mood," "Dueling Banjos," "Hotel California," a classical medley, Latin favorites, originals and medleys on the fly. Audience interaction, participation, clapping, singing, dancing, snapping, "olés" and "yee-haws" are all encouraged. Seventeen CDs and two DVDs are currently available. Country, Western, Beatles, Inspirational, Celtic and Broadway are just a few more in the works.

Edgar holds a bachelor's of music degree in guitar performance from Oklahoma City University. He was recently added to the Hispanic exhibit at The Oklahoma History Center and was also honored with a Distinguished Alumni Award from Oklahoma City University in 2010. His You Tube video of "Bohemian Rhapsody" has more than 14 million hits worldwide.

Admission is $5 for adults and $1 for children 12 and under. The concert is free for OPSU students, faculty and staff with a valid OPSU ID. The concert is sponsored by the OPSU Cultural Entertainment Committee.
