Over the past 30 years, Kirk has performed for hundreds of weddings and other special events.

Kirk Hanser has performed throughout the U.S., Europe and Japan since the mid 80's as a soloist and ensemble member. In concert and on recordings these days, he is mainly heard as half of the internationally acclaimed Hanser-McClellan Guitar Duo.

Hanser's recordings and performances have been touted as "an absolute winner in every way" (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) and "full of color and a real surprise throughout" (Classical Guitar Magazine - UK). One of his most recent recordings,"La Vida Breve", was called "...passionate, beautiful...guitar playing at its highest order" by Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine (U.S.).

Kirk lives in the St. Louis area with his four children. He currently lectures and teaches for several colleges and universities (the HMGD is ensemble-in-residence for Webster University), arranges music for events and publications, and acts as director for both the Childbloom Guitar Program and the St. Louis Academy for Guitar. Locally, Kirk performs regularly as an on-call guitarist with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and the Muny, as well as weddings and corporate events.

The wedding day was so hectic that I didn't even have a chance to meet him as the bride. Nonetheless, Kirk was set up in time and gone without fuss. I'm glad that he was reliable and capable. He played beautifully for my guests prior to the ceremony start and kept pace with our ceremony, which we are very grateful for as we did not go over those finer details prior to the wedding. He worked with us on our music selection in advance and it all came together great! He's very talented. Our wedding sounded enchanted.

Kirk is a very talented guitar player. He played the perfect background guitar music for an outdoor summer cocktail party for 50 people. He was very professional and easy to work with. Thank you, Kirk!

Kirk did a wonderful job playing at our wedding on 11/28/15. We would recommend Kirk for anyone who is looking for classical guitar to enhance the experience. We loved Kirk's guitar playing and would hire him again.
