Brandon Acker

Brandon J. Acker is a sought out classical guitarist, recording engineer and specialist in early plucked instruments.  Recent achievements include two debut CDs released by Jester Recordings and a highly praised collaboration with the creators of Les Misérables in the English language premiere of their musical La Revolution Français.   He has toured extensively in the UK and Canada with Chamber Opera Chicago and performed with notable groups such as The Newberry Consort, Opera Lafayette, Haymarket Opera, Third Coast Baroque, Bella Voce and more.  He’s been praised for his “Salient licks on the theorbo and baroque guitar” by the Milwaukee Sentinel and his frequent lieder and lute song recitals have led the editor of Vocal Arts Chicago to proclaim that “There are few events on this calendar more beautiful or ideal than Brandon J. Acker accompanying a singer in an intimate setting.”
