About
Steven Seidenman has been performing as a classical guitarist for over 25 years. His various concert venues have included the Montgomery County Arts Council, The Martin Luther King Memorial Library, Church of the Epiphany, The Mansion at Strathmore, Rockville Civic Center, The Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington, Lisner Auditorium, and Montgomery College's Guest Artist series. He performed twice for Maryland television.

Steven was a winner of the Montpelier Recital Competition, the first guitarist to win, along with only one other guitarist, in the competition's history. In 2011 he was invited to perform at the 8th annual Zihuatanejo International Guitar Festival in Southern Mexico (Zihuafest), representing the classical guitar among the diverse styles of guitar music presented at the festival.

He has released two CD's, and is currently in the production stage of his third. He has made several guitar transcriptions of Bach, Mendelssohn, Vivaldi, Chopin and other classical composers.

He has performed at weddings, anniversaries, receptions, corporate events, memorial services, and a variety of other special events, as well as community centers, libraries, universities, and charitable organizations. In addition to solo guitar repertoire spanning from the Renaissance through to the present, including music written for him, his repertoire also includes tasteful arrangements of vintage American standards, as well as works from the chamber music repertoire for guitar and flute, violin, and string quartet by composers such as Giuliani, Sor, Paganini, Berlioz, Boccherini, Bach, Mozart, and many others.

Steve is not only an extremely talented musician, but a kind, sincere, good person who is very enjoyable to work with. Steve played at my daughter's outdoor wedding last weekend in Purcellville, VA and the sound of his classical guitar just added a special sense of peace and tranquility to our beautiful outdoor garden ceremony. It was just gorgeous and I could have listened to him play for hours. I highly recommend Steve. He is easy to work with, flexible and nothing short of fantastic! You will be very, very pleased with your decision to hire Steve! Thank you, Steve, for being a part of my daughter's special day - we could not have picked a better person.

Steven was a class act from start to finish! He arrived early to warm up and even learned a song, "Around the World", especially for our first dance. During our small reception he played a mixture of classical music and standards; it was the perfect background music for our intimate wedding. I would certainly recommend Steven for your smaller-scale wedding to provide elegant and tasteful musical accompaniment.

He went above and beyond to help us with our tribute to our father. I would gladly recommend Mr. Seidenman. His selection of songs on his CD were beautiful. His friend, Mr. Mark Wesling, was a perfect musician for the occasion. The songs spoke to our hearts. I know my family and Dad were very pleased with the performance and professionalism. Both Mark and Steve are a great team and express so much in their music. Sincerely, Karen and David

Really nice guy, I had requested an amp and I don't think he had one in his possession as you couldn't here him at all. We had an outdoor covered event for 75. The first person we hired never really responded and we were charged twice for deposits on two guitarists. Not sure we will use services again thru gig master.

Steven Seidenman’s Response:

I was confirmed for this gig well over a week in advance with no communication or details given regarding it being outdoors. Pursuant to my contacting the client twice by email for the address, she responded, informing me three or four hours before the event of her preference for amplification. Although as a classical guitarist I don't generally utilize amplification, I have on occasion, and certainly could have procured an amp with enough prior notice. I performed almost nonstop for three hours. I was asked once to move to a more acoustically favorable location in the room, and received no additional feedback regarding continuous difficulty hearing the music.
