MASTER CLASSICAL GUITARIST

Christopher Rude is a full-time, professional classical guitarist, specializing in weddings, cocktail and dinner receptions, corporate events, fund-raisers and private celebrations. Through 35 years of playing the guitar, Christopher has earned two degrees, released two solo albums, amassed a repertoire in excess of 500 selections, and performed at over 200 weddings around the nation. Glowing reviews, a perfect 5-star rating and five consecutive Bride's Choice Awards from Wedding Wire, prove Christopher's customer service skills to be as refined as his musicianship.

Christopher's professional website is considered by many to be the best in the business, so why not take a look and decide for yourself? Not only will you find information about Christopher and his services, but also, useful planning tools like local vendor listings, links to wedding planning sites, FAQ's and even a Ceremony Music Organizer, complete with linked audio and video samples. You'll even find a published sample contract, complete package pricing and a real time calendar of Christopher's upcoming events, so you can check his availability on your chosen date.

As for the "classical guitar," there is no shortage of guitarists who claim to play a few selections in the classical style, but classical guitar isn't just a style, it's a complete discipline, and these days, there are fewer and fewer true classical guitarists. If you want to hear the difference for yourself, just compare audio samples and listen for the earmarks of an accomplished classical guitarist: soft, warm tone, expressive phrasing and above all--a sense of calm and smoothness throughout. If you hear all these things, then you're probably listening to Christopher's sample, and it's time to give him a call!

Call Christopher now to check availability and reserve your date!

Chris was absolutely amazing! Working with him was great! He was very accommodating, knowledgeable, and professional. We left a lot of the music selections up to him and he read the event perfectly. The experience was more than we expected! He even found us to say good bye and congratulate us. I only wish we could have chatted longer!
