U.S. Classic Guitar President William Jenks is honored to announce the opening season of the 2020 Los Angeles International Guitar Series which will feature six outstanding concerts of the top classical guitarists in the world which will run between January 18, 2020 and June 27, 2020. Over the last fourteen years, William Jenks has established himself as a premier leader in the industry presenting the Portland International Guitar series which is one of the most important and celebrated classical guitar presenting and educational organizations in the nation with the presentation of over 150 concerts of the greatest classical guitarists in the world including the Romeros; John Williams; Manuel Barrueco; Roland Dyens; the Assad Duo; Grammy award winners Sharon Isbin, David Russell, Jason Vieaux, the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, and many more. Among the featured performers in the series was famed guitarist Ana Vidovic, who predicted that Jenks’s series would become “one of the most prestigious in the country”—a prediction now fulfilled.

On Sunday, February 23 at 8 PM at the Shatto Chapel of FCCLA will be an exciting concert featuring Mateusz Kowalski of Poland who recently won first prize in the prestigious EuroStrings Guitar Competition held in London (July 2019) which is a competition only open to first prize winners of 17 European Guitar festivals held in 2018 and 2019. In addition to the EuroStrings competition, he also won first prize in numerous other competitions and recorded his debut CD in 2018 distributed by NAXOS. This concert will also feature LA’s very own concertmaster of the LA Phil, Martin Chalifour, playing duets on a historic Stradivarius violin with Slovenian guitarist Mak Grgic who is emerging as a star on the world wide stage and is touted as a “gifted young guitarist” by the New York Times, and “a guitarist to keep an eye on” by the Washington Post.
