"Stacy Arnold recently performed for our Progressive Living residents and guests. His show was excellent! He not only played classical guitar beautifully, he also gave a brief history of the music before he performed it. It provided a nice progression so we could think about the time period while enjoying the music. It was just the right amount of background information. His sound is pure and lovely and we enjoyed every minute. Well done!" (Assisted Living Concert - Leanne D./Richardson, TX)
