Eliot Fisk and Zaira Meneses Concert Postponed due to Oregon Wildfires September 12 2020

U.S. Classic Guitar kicked off their first virtual concert of the 2019-2020 U.S. International Guitar Series grand finale with Grammy- Winner Jason Vieaux in a concert and master class August 29 and 30. The concert and class were a huge success with a nice turn out. The sound quality and video was top notch and the audience was able to interact with Jason Vieaux after the concert and at the master class through Zoom.

Next, on Saturday, October 3 at 1 PM (PST) will be a virtual master class for the legendary guitarist Eliot Fisk followed by a concert on Sunday, October 4 at 4 PM (PST) (these are rescheduled dates due to the Oregon wildfires). Eliot Fisk will perform solos and duets with his lovely wife Zaira Meneses from their home in Boston presenting an entirely different and exclusive program including works by Chopin, Brouwer, Bach, Barrios, and more. 

Eliot Fisk is known worldwide as a charismatic performer famed for his adventurous and virtuosic repertoire. After nearly 50 years before the public he remains as his mentor Andres Segovia once wrote, “at the top line of our artistic world.” Eliot Fisk was the last direct pupil of Andres Segovia and also studied interpretation with the legendary harpsichordist Ralph Kirkpatrick at Yale University, from which he graduated “summa cum laude” in 1976, and where, directly following his own graduation in 1977, he founded the guitar department at the Yale School of Music.

Zaira Meneses is hailed by the New York Times as: "a captivating edge full of colors and feelings" and is recognized as the first female Mexican classical guitarist with a successful career as a soloist, teacher, and director in the USA. She was also the first female guitarist to record a new 45-minute album of J.S. BACH compositions where she includes her own guitar transcription of the well-known Partita No.2 in D minor.
