Argentinean Classical, Folk, and Tango Guitar
Alejo de los Reyes

Please join us for an evening guitar music with Argentinian guitarist Alejo de los Reyes. Alejo is one of the leading guitarists in the world today who combines the many facets of the classical guitar with an in-depth knowledge of Argentine folk music. He has emerged as a sought out international performer who stands out for his creativity and his profound musical expressiveness. Alejo started his musical training under his parents, both guitarists, most particularly his father, Argentine classical guitarist Oscar Rubén de los Reyes. His career as a concert guitarist began at age 11 in his hometown of Chivilcoy (Argentina) and has led him to perform in many cities in Argentina, Spain, Switzerland, and Italy. He studied guitar at the National University for the Arts (Universidad Nacional de Arte, UNA) and the Manuel de Falla Music Conservatory (Conservatorio Superior de Música Manuel de Falla), under María Bello and Jorge Biscardi. In 2011, he was awarded first place in the María Luisa Anido International Guitar Competition, held in San Lorenzo (Argentina). His most recent and third solo recording is a 2022 release entitled Al Compas de La Vihuela, a collection of Argentine folk and traditional music.

For this Soiree, Alejo will also partner with guests Paula Serrano (vocals) and Shinjoo Cho (bandoneon).

The Classical Guitar Soirée Recital Series at the Athenaeum of Philadelphia is offered in partnership with the Philadelphia Classical Guitar Society.
