About John Alvarado:

Back by popular demand from his debut performance at the 2022 Porch Concert Series, we are excited to welcome back John Alvarado!

John Alvarado received his Bachelors in Music Performance from DePaul University in Chicago and his Master of Music Performance from Arizona State University. He has been performing in the Indianapolis area since 2004. While his formal training is in classical and flamenco guitar, his musical interests span a wide range including classical, jazz, flamenco, rock, Latin, and more. All these interests combine to create a solo guitar repertoire informed by his diverse interests yet rooted in his love of the guitar as a solo concert instrument.

His performances have included appearances at the Indianapolis Art Center, Eiteljorg Museum, Indiana History Center, Butler University, Clowes Hall, IUPUI, and Butler University. He has also been a frequent guest on the radio show “Indy Arts and Entertainment.” In 2008 he was awarded the prestigious Innovative Artist award from IUPUI for his work. In 2013 he was awarded a Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship by the Arts Council of Indianapolis.
