The Portland Guitar Society supports all kinds of guitar concerts, master classes, workshops, guitar festivals....All Things Guitar. Ten years ago, one of our members, William Jenks, opened Portland Classic Guitar, a guitar store, as well as a lesson and concert venue, and launched an outstanding classic guitar concert series. PGS has been an active and proud sponsor of the series since 2007. Over the years, Mr. Jenks has brought some of the world's most accomplished classical guitarists to Portland to perform and teach. To name just a few: John Williams, Pepe Romero, Angel Romero, Eliot Fisk, David Russell, Ana Vidouvic, Jason Vieaux, Jonathan Leathwood, Denis Azabagic, Scott Tennant, William Kanengiser, the Paris Guitar Duo, Berta Rojas, and many, many others. In addition, many of our own fine Portland-based classical guitarists such as the Oregon Guitar Quartet (David Franzen, Bryan Johanson, Jesse McCann, and John Mery), Peter Zisa, Scott Kritzer, and Jeff Ashton have performed on the series.
Once again, this year's series is chock full of amazing performers. Hope to see you there!
