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.

To open this eminent series on Saturday, January 18 at 8 PM will be Spanish guitarist Virginia Luque who is returning back on popular demand after dazzling our Portland audience two years ago. She plays classical and flamenco music in a Spanish romantic style, combining extraordinary technical virtuosity with beautiful tone and musicianship. She is a former private student of Andres Segovia and holds a Master’s degree from Julliard School of Music. She is also the music director and conductor of the New York Women’s Philharmonic. She has been awarded First Prize at several international competitions, including the “Manuel de Falla” Competition for Classical Guitar in Granada, Spain, and has received the Lincoln Center Scholarship among other awards. The opening concert will take place in one of LA’s most gorgeous venues the Shatto Chapel of the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles (FCCLA) featuring high arching Gothic architecture and outstanding acoustics.
