Guitar Society of Southern Oregon and Britt Education Present René Izquierdo in Concert at Southern Oregon University!

Cuban-born René Izquierdo is a unique artist and passionate educator whose career has been dedicated to inspiring individuals and connecting communities. René endeavors to create experiences that enrich people’s lives and add beauty to our world. Through his “unforgettable versatility, sensitivity and sublime musicianship” (Classical Guitar Magazine), René has firmly established himself as one of the world’s classical guitar virtuosos. He is celebrated for his ability to weave an unparalleled technical command of his instrument with his gift of storytelling, creating an intimate musical experience with his audience.

René has performed to critical acclaim, touring extensively throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia. He has played at stages such as Carnegie Hall in New York, Manaus Opera House in Brazil, and National Recital Hall in Taiwan. René will also be performing duets with his wife, Elina Chekan. A musical partnership like no other, this duo presents performances that serve the music above all and feel like an intimate conversation as an extension of their love for each other.

“I believe that the power of art and beauty has no limits, and is as essential as the air we breathe.” René Izquierdo

This project is supported in part by a grant from the Jackson County Cultural Coalition funded by the Oregon Cultural Trust, investing in Oregon’s arts, humanities, and heritage.
