La Guitarra California Festival
Festival Testimonials (Festimonials)?
"The La Guitarra California Festival is, in my experience, one of the very few events of its kind worthy of the name. A truly festive spirit was felt and shared by the participants and it was a refreshing change to see such genuine enthusiasm from the organization right through to the students. An event to celebrate and enjoy."

"They had a wonderful list of artists lined up for the festival, showcasing the variety of performers and their programs. The quaint and cozy town setting was the perfect location for this intimate yet international festival.
It was a great pleasure for me to meet other international artists"

"La Guitarra California is no doubt one of the best examples of how a music festival can become a true link between a local community and the whole world. It was a huge honor for me to be part of such an outstanding guitar festival that has become an international cultural event."
... Jesús Saiz-Huedo
"The 2003 La Guitarra Festival was a great joy. First of all, it's a wonderful location being so close to the Pacific, yet in a very temperate climate. Everyone running the festival were very gracious to us, and the venue and crowd were fantastic. The sound guys gave us a great recording of our performance, and we even came away with free t-shirts and stuff!
The festival was a first class operation. We look forward to coming back in the near future."
... Christopher Hanford, San Francisco Guitar Quartet
" Russ De Angelo has done so much to make La Guitarra California a success and he certainly has a big task in keeping it going. Congratulations for keeping the tradition alive! We had such an awesome time there!"
