About the event
Noah Ward, guitar
Noah Ward became interested in music at a young age, first picking up the guitar when he was ten. He quickly became obsessed and experimented endlessly with various styles of playing. By the age of eighteen, Noah realized that classical guitar was his passion and decided to pursue it professionally. He recently earned a master’s degree in classical guitar performance at the University of Cincinnati (CCM), where he had the opportunity to play in Master Classes for musicians such as Oscar Ghiglia, Mak Grgíc, Paul O’dette, and Cristiano Porqueddu. He also holds a bachelor’s in classical guitar performance from UC and an associate’s degree in music from Sinclair Community College. When he isn’t performing, Noah dedicates his time to teaching at Angel’s House of Music and Wert Music. Through his performances, Noah strives to create an experience for his audience that inspires the same feelings of excitement that he felt when he discovered the guitar as a kid.
Keith Klein, visual artist
Keith Klein's work is part of the collection(s) of the Princess of Saudi Arabia, Cincinnati Bell, Convergys, Cincinnati Financial, and many prestigious private collections across the United States. Klein studied with Anneliese Wahrenburg in her atelier for ten years where he was trained in the Hague School manner of painting. Ms. Wahrenburg emigrated from Germany after being imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp for sheltering and helping Jewish people during the war. Keith is amazingly diverse, with styles that range from classical realism, impressionism, pointillism to paintings done en Plein-air – always painted with his recognizable "voice" even in these divergent styles. He often puts surprises and symbols in his work that are delightful to find. Keith's studio in Florence, Kentucky, was built in 1903 and was once the First Florence Deposit Bank. Keith teaches classes in oil painting, acrylics, pastels, and watercolor five days a week in his studio. Many of his students are accepted into the prestigious Governor's School for the Arts and awarded full scholarships for college. He also has a particular affinity and gift for teaching special needs children and adults.
