Miles McConnell

Madison-based classical guitarist Miles McConnell is active as a soloist and as a member of the guitar duo Red and Black with Gabor Szarvas.  Miles’ music has taken him to Spain, the U.K., and around the U.S.  His repertoire is diverse and reflects his musical interests and his travels. 

A typical solo performance by Miles will often feature Latin and Spanish music including some flamenco, Celtic music, arrangements of popular songs, music of Japan, and traditional Western classical repertoire.

Miles’ recording of Bach, Copland, Falla, and Gershwin is entitled ‘S Wonderful, and is available as a CD and online through various digital platforms.  Miles holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin - Madison.  For more information, please review the other areas of this website.
