Dear Friends of U.S. Classic Guitar,

The upcoming March concerts and master classes for David Russell in Los Angeles, Portland, and Hawaii have been postponed.

As soon as we have been told it is safe for everyone, we will reschedule his performances as soon as possible.

To ensure the health and wellness of our community, we’re complying with a series of guidelines to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. These include the government’s advice to close public buildings and the Oregon, Hawaii, and California Department of Health’s advisement to cancel any gatherings of crowds larger than 250 through March.

While we do not offer refunds for rescheduled concerts, we would like to offer these three options for those that bought tickets:

  1. Hang on to your tickets which will be valid for the new rescheduled David Russell concert date. The date will be announced as soon as possible.
  2. Receive a voucher for the value of your ticket purchase which will be valid for any future concert such the Angel Romero/Nina Kotova concert in May.
  3. Donate the value of your ticket purchase for a tax deductible donation.

 Once you decide what you’d like to do, here’s the best way to reach us:

  • By email (preferred): info@usclassicguitar.org
  • By phone: 971.715.8097 (Mon-Fri, 9:30am – 5:30pm)

We want to do our part to make sure our audiences stay safe and healthy. Thank you for your support and understanding.


Classical guitarist DAVID RUSSELL is world renowned for his superb musicianship and inspired artistry, having earned the highest praise from audiences and critics alike.

In 1997, he was named a Fellow of The Royal Academy of Music in London for his great talent and his international career.

In 2004, he won the GRAMMY® Award for “Best Classical Instrumental Solo” for his CD Aire Latino. Then, soon after, the town of Nigrán, Spain awarded him a silver medal of the town.

In 2005, the Music Conservatory of Vigo opened a new auditorium in his name called the “Auditorio David Russell”.

A prolific recording artist, he has recorded 17 recorded CDs under the Telarc International recording label!

“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.”
– The New York Times
“My congratulations on your musicality and guitaristic technique.”
– Andrés Segovia, upon hearing Mr. RUSSELL perform in London.
