Guitar Artistry from Local Masters Fareed Haque and Goran Ivanovic

They are two of Chicago’s finest guitarists. Fareed Haque and Goran Ivanovic play classical guitars, and the music they make is a melting pot of styles.

Their adventurous musical blend is deeply rooted: Haque, a Chicagoan by birth, has a Pakistani father and a mother from Chile; while Ivanovic was born in Croatia to a Serbian father and a Bosnian Croat mother.

For their first appearance together on “Chicago Tonight,” the virtuosos preview their Friday night concert at Space in Evanston.
