South Bay Guitar Society presents Cuban guitar virtuoso René Izquierdo. René returns to SBGS in a VIRTUAL concert LIVESTREAMED on stage from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee. Our online concert format allows for audience engagement with the artist in discussions moderated by host Steve Lin.

Mr. Izquierdo graduated from the Amadeo Roldan Conservatory and Superior Institute of Art in Havana, where he studied with renowned guitarist Jesus Ortega. After his arrival in the United States, he graduated from Yale University School of Music, where he studied with Benjamin Verdery and obtained a Master of Music and an Artist Diploma degree in 2001 and was awarded the Eliot Fisk Prize to an outstanding guitarist. He has studied with Leo Brouwer, David Russell, Pepe Romero, Angel Romero, Carlos Barbosa-Lima, David Starobin, Eduardo Fernandez, and Jorge Morel.

Izquierdo has been awarded several competition prizes and has appeared as a guest soloist and in chamber music concerts throughout the United States, Canada, Cuba, Spain, France and Italy. He has shared the stage with many prestigious guitarists including Eliot Fisk, Jorge Morel and Benjamin Verdery.
“His natural and instinctive interpretations are second to none: his virtuoso technique allows him absolute command of the instrument giving him the independence of subtle phrasing, dazzling speed, beautiful tonal control… everything.” Classical Guitar Magazine, May, 2010.
