Teaching studio Portland Classic Guitar this month is presenting Duo Deloro, featuring Adam del Monte and Mak Grgic. The duo will perform twice: First at 8 p.m. March 18 at Marylhurst University, with a master class 11 a.m.-1 p.m. March 19, and again at 4 p.m. March 20 at St. Catherine’s Episcopal Church in Nehalem. These concerts will feature fresh arrangements of Guastavino, Granados, Albeniz, traditional Argentinian tangos and original flamenco compositions by del Monte.

Del Monte is a well-known flamenco and classical guitarist/composer, and he has performed internationally, including at Carnegie Hall; Lincoln Center; The Barbican Center; Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow; and in Caracas, Venezuela. He has been noted for his collaboration with Yusef Lateef and the Atlanta Symphony, as part of the National Black Arts Festival in Atlanta, Ga.

Grgic is a guitarist drawn to the avant-garde and to film music and more traditional works, including transcriptions of Brahms and Kreisler. Recently a Young Artist in Residence at the Da Camera Society of Los Angeles, Grgic is a co-founder of DCB, Da Camera’s contemporary music ensemble, which strives to expand the definition of what a modern music ensemble can be.

He has performed with orchestras, such as the Spokane Symphony, the RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra, the Croatian Chamber Philharmonic, the SNG Maribor Symphony Orchestra and the St. Petersburg Symphony.

The Marylhurst concert and master class will be presented in Wiegand Hall on campus, 17600 Pacific Highway. St. Catherine’s is located at 36335 N. Highway 101, Nehalem, Ore.

Tickets range in price from $32-$52 and can be purchased online at portlandclassicguitar.com.
