March 23. Close Encounters with Music continues its track record of presenting incredible performances with this one by guitar virtuoso Eliot Fisk. Fisk, who studied with Andres Segovia, has transformed the guitar repertoire through his transcriptions of Bach, Scarlatti, Haydn, Mozart, Paganini, and others and has collaborated with greats like guitarists Angel Romero and Bill Frisell and clarinetist Richard Stoltzman. This show at the Mahawie Performing Arts Center pairs him with soprano Jennifer Zetlan and cellist Yehuda Hanini and promises the world premiere of a new work by composer Robert Beaser. (The Monument Mountain Regional High School Band presents its 30th Annual Pops Concert March 8; Masters of the Fiddle, featuring Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy, visits March 24.) 6pm. $32, $42.
