Update, May 4, 2020:
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and extended stay at home order for the states of California, Oregon, and Hawaii, which will very likely be in effect through the end of May, U.S. Classic Guitar has made the decision to postpone the David Russell concerts and the Angel Romero and Nina Kotova concerts scheduled for May 15 in Portland and May 17 in Los Angeles.
As of now, U.S. Classic Guitar’s plan is to move all the concerts that were postponed this spring to this summer beginning in late June with Grammy Award Winner Jason Vieaux in Los Angeles and the remaining rescheduled concerts will continue through August and possibly September. Stay tuned for the rescheduled dates of the 2019-2020 season this summer and the announcement of the exciting upcoming 2020-2021 series beginning next fall. New dates will be contingent on orders and conditions of local governments. All plans are subject to change as new developments and recommendations for resuming business and events arise.
As with all concerts that are being rescheduled during this pandemic, U.S. Classic Guitar is providing the following options for you if you bought individual tickets:
- Hold on to your tickets and they will be valid for the new rescheduled date for the same artist.
- Exchange your ticket for another performance once the new schedule has been posted. (email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Donate the value of your ticket and receive an acknowledgement letter for your tax deductible donation. (email: email@example.com)
For those that bought season tickets, U.S. Classic Guitar will be satisfying the value of your tickets through the rescheduled concert dates this season.
We’re informed that they are not offering refunds at this time because they have made a financial commitment to the artists to reschedule their concerts and secure the venues for their performances.

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