If the guitar were a politician, you could say it reaches across the aisle and rises above partisanship. The instrument lends itself to all genres and appeals to just about all music lovers.

Classical guitarist Peter Fletcher is performing a recital this weekend as part of the Pro-Mozart Society of Atlanta. The Atlanta-born musician now splits his time between New York and Detroit, but returns home for this concert, dedicated to his aunt, who passed away last year.

“She was in society, she loved the arts,” Fletcher tells “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes, “especially classical music. She kind of gave me street cred to my parents, who were a little uncomfortable with me becoming a classical musician. She gave me a lot of inspiration and support.”

Fletcher performs this Sunday, February 10 at 3 pm, at St. John United Methodist Church. Admission is free.
