Bio

“Jim provided the perfect soundtrack to our candle-lit wedding ceremony. We gave him free license to play whatever he felt was appropriate and we were thrilled with the performance.” Jennifer Williamson, bride, 10/10/10 wedding

“Jim’s music helped create the perfect vibe at the art show we put on. It was the perfect complement to the art and helped enhance the experience without taking the focus off of the artwork. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.”
Kevin Clauson, 10/17/10 Chicago art show organizer

Jim Perona’s classical guitar playing has elevated and enhanced weddings, fundraisers, private parties and other events from Boston to Chicago. The recipient of a master’s degree in classical guitar performance from the New England Conservatory, Jim’s ability and vast repertoire has helped him transform events from the ordinary into unique one-of-a-kind occasions.

Gifted in many styles of guitar playing, Jim has performed everything from jazz and blues to heavy metal and an orchestra role in such theatrical productions as Les Miserables, Little Shop of Horrors and Jesus Christ Superstar. However, Jim’s passion is classical guitar, a fact borne out by a repertoire that spans more than 500 years of music – from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical and Romantic to the 20th Century.

Jim performs for both wedding ceremonies and cocktail and dinner receptions. You will also find him at wine tastings, art shows, restaurants, corporate receptions and at public performances in such settings as libraries, schools, churches, senior centers or anywhere else where exceptional music is appreciated.
