International recording, touring and guitar virtuoso Aaron Larget-Caplan, has been hailed by The Washington Post as “a riveting artist,” and B. Werner at ClassicalGuitarCanada writes “Larget-Caplan has an expressive touch, warmth and clarity.” Larget-Caplan's Pomona College program will include music by Lou Bunk, John Cage, Tom Flaherty and others. This gifted performer “catches every nuance of the music,” hails Fanfare, and is a highly sought-after soloist and chamber musician who regularly performs new and standard repertoire, connecting with audiences with a Bernstein-esque ease.

Larget-Caplan has performed solo and chamber music in Europe, Russia, Taiwan, and across the United States including El Palacio de Linares in Madrid, Spain, Sheremetev Palace in Russia, and Palazzo del Te & Ducale in Mantova, Italy.

He made his debut at age 16 at the Tabor Opera House, and has since premiered over 80 solo and chamber compositions, soloed with orchestras, directed concert series, created commissioning endeavors, and brought classical music into schools and communities.

A gifted performer and speaker, he is sought for his deft programming of new and standard repertoire, while connecting with audiences with a Bernstein-esque ease. In 2019 Aaron received the Médaille D’Etain from the Société Académique Arts-Sciences-Lettres of Paris, France for his trailblazing work in music.

Joining Larget-Caplan on one selection is local guitarist and a familiar figure on Pomona College concerts, Peter Yates.
