U.S. Classic Guitar is thrilled to announce the U.S. International Guitar Series Season 2022 line-up and the return to live concerts in the areas of PortlandLos Angeles, and Hawaii. The concerts will also be streamed live for a pay-per-view audience that wishes to watch the concerts virtually. Season tickets are now on sale for a discounted price of $25 off now through October 31st. This season will include some of the greatest guitarists in the world including the Romero Quartet, Grammy-winners Sharon Isbin and David RussellAngel Romero with cellist Nina Kotova, and rising stars Mak Grgic and Adam Levin. The series will close with a special benefit performance with Italian guitarists Roberto Fabbri and Michele Libraro as well as U.S. Classic Guitar President William Jenks. Each concert will be presented three times in each of the venues in Portland, Los Angeles, and Hawaii and each concert will be streamed live online once for a pay-per-view audience. 

The venues this season will include the gorgeous historic First Congregational Churches of Portland and Los Angeles, as well as the Kahilu Theatre and a beautiful private venue on the Big Island of Hawaii. For your safety, we will be requiring proper masks and proof of vaccination upon entry to each performance. 

The season will kick off in late January of 2022 with rising star Mak Grgic who has quickly established himself as one of the up-and-coming performers in the guitar genre, whos program includes music as far reaching as works from the avant-garde, film music to the great classics of guitar repertoire and transcriptions of Brahms and Kreisler. Touted as a “gifted young guitarist” by the New York Times, and “a guitarist to keep an eye on” by the Washington Post, Mak Grgic [GER-gich] is a star on the worldwide stage. 

Next, in February will be the legendary Romero Quartet performing their 60-year anniversary tour featuring Celin, Pepe, Celino, and Lito Romero. Known to millions as “The Royal Family of the Guitar,” the Romeros have performed in major performance venues of the world, such as Carnegie Hall. They were also asked to perform at the White House and in 1983 they appeared at the Vatican for the Pope John Paul II. King Juan Carlos knighted Celin, Pepe, and Angel into the Isabel la Catolica. Since the Romero family came to the United States in 1957, they have consistently dazzled audiences everywhere and have inspired enthusiastic praise from critics coast to coast. The Romeros have given thousands of concerts all over the world; today, they continue to produce music which is extraordinary. Whether performing as a quartet, duo or as soloists in recital and with symphony orchestra, the Romeros prevail as champions in the realm of classical guitar. 

David Russell dazzled our online audience this last March with an incredible performance from his home in Spain and now he will be returning to perform for us live this March with a completely different program. He received a Grammy-award for his CD called Air Latino, he holds an honorary doctorate from the University of Arizona, and he was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the Guitar Foundation of America. He is a very prolific recording artist and his discography includes seventeen CDs with Telarc International. The New York Times wrote about his performance: "... Mr. Russell made his mastery evident without ever deviating from an approach that places musical values above mere display. It was apparent to the audience throughout the recital that Mr. Russell possesses a talent of extraordinary dimension". 

Angel Romero is a member of the Romero family but left the quartet to focus on his solo career and conducting. Hailed for his superior artistry as a master of Spanish guitar, Angel Romero’s eminence in the music world as a soloist and a conductor is heralded by audiences and critics alike. One of the most sought-after musicians of his generation, Angel Romero has appeared with the world’s major orchestras, including the LA Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic, the New World Symphony, and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. For these exiting concerts in April, he will be joined by the Russian-American cellist Nina Kotova, who has been praised by Gramophone as a “strong and individual artist” and by the Los Angeles Times as “a talent to reckon with- poised, committed, graceful and spirited.” Ms. Kotova has been internationally recognized as one of the outstanding instrumentalists of her generation. She has performed as a soloist with symphony orchestras across the globe and has repeatedly toured the UK, Europe, Asia, and the US. 

Performing in May will be Sharon Isbin who is acclaimed for her extraordinary lyricism, technique, and versatility. She is a multiple GRAMMY Award winner and she was named the 2020 Musical America Worldwide Instrumentalist of the Year and the first guitarist ever to receive the coveted honor in its 59- year award history. Hailed as “the pre-eminent guitarist of our time,” she is the winner of Guitar Player magazine’s Best Classical Guitarist award, Germany’s Echo Klassik, Concert Artists Guild’s Virtuoso Award, and the Toronto and Madrid Queen Sofia competitions, and was the first guitarist ever to win the Munich ARD Competition. She has performed with the major orchestras and important venues of the world and her catalogue of over 30 albums from Baroque, Spanish/Latin and 20th Century to crossover and jazz-fusion, has sold nearly a million copies and reflects her remarkable versatility. She is also the director of guitar departments at the Aspen Music Festival and The Juilliard School (which she created in l989 becoming the first and only guitar instructor in the institution’s 100-year history). 

Praised for his “visceral and imaginative performances” by the Washington Post, top prize-winning classical guitarist and recording artist Adam Levin will be performing for us in June. Levin has performed extensively across the United States at renowned venues such as Chicago’s Pick Staiger, Nichols, and Mayne Stage concert halls as well as at the prestigious Art Institute of Chicago; Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, and Jordan Hall; Spivey Hall in Atlanta; repeat appearances at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City; and the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. In Europe, Levin has performed in some of the finest venues across Spain, Italy, Germany, and Switzerland. 

The series will close in August featuring Italian guitarist Roberto Fabbri performing with his two daughters vocalist Francesca Fabbri and violist Valeria Fabbri; Italian guitarist Michele Libraro; and U.S. Classic Guitar President William Jenks. In 2007, Soundboard magazine stated that, “Roberto Fabbri is flamboyant and technically astonishing - a definite crowd pleaser.”  He currently records for Sony classical where he often composes and performs his own music. Michele Libraro is the recipient of “The Golden guitar Prize” at the 7th International Guitar Meeting in Alessandria, Italy in September of 2002 and he is the winner of various National competitions such as those of Genova, Pescara, Taranto, Locorotondo, Napoli and Matera. William Jenks is a rare talent from a new generation of classical guitarists. Not only is he a world class recording artist, sought out for performances and master classes around the globe—he is also the Founder and President of U.S. Classic Guitar. He has performed throughout the United States, South America, and Europe and has taught master classes and served on the jury for several International guitar competitions.
