Los Angeles Guitar Quartet releases Opalescent

The GRAMMY Award-winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, which features USC Thornton faculty members William Kanengiser and Scott Tennant, USC Thornton alumnus Matthew Greif (MM ’92) and John Dearman, has released its fourteenth album, Opalescent. This release marks the group’s 40th anniversary as a touring ensemble.

All of the songs on the album were recorded at the USC Brain and Creativity Institute. Lead single “Hidden Realm of Light” was written by USC Thornton alumnus Andrew York (MM ’86).

“Seen through the colorful lens of the guitar, the pieces on Opalescent reflect the composers’ unique visions of sound, saturated with light. We hope their music gives you as much solace and joy as it has given us,” said William Kanengiser.
