Both Dave Martone and Glen Drover have produced critically acclaimed albums showcasing their world-class talents as guitarists and composers. Dave and Glen individually have developed fans and followers throughout the world who have been impressed with both their technical abilities and emotional depth as artists. Both guitarists will be backed by their own group of outstanding musicians making this both a showcase of amazing talent and an informal “clinic” for musicians around the globe.

The September 25th webcast will be presented from our newly completed North Auditorium.

Peter Morticelli, President of Magna Carta, says “With Dave Martone from Vancouver and Glen Drover from Toronto, we not only have two of the greatest guitar talents that Canada has ever produced, but we have two musicians that have made their mark internationally. The webcast will allow both of these great players to showcase their abilities to the world via the internet.”
