Classical guitarist Pavel Steidl has traveled the world, making performance his livelihood since 1982. That year, the native of Czechoslovakia made his way to Paris and won first prize at the International Guitar Competition of Radio France. This Saturday at 5 PM, he's to showcase his talent at Huntsville's Church of the Nativity. Having arrived in the city after traveling through the night from Florida, he took time to visit WLRH and speak with Judy Watters. He played his guitar a bit, too. You can stream or download the whole presentation here.

You can find more information about Saturday's scheduled performance at the Church of the Nativity website.
