Classical guitarist Jason Vieaux's 2015-16 continues with exciting solo and chamber concerts across the world.

In December, Jason joined forces with cellist Inbal Segev for their duo debut at Brooklyn's iconic floating venue, Bargemusic. They performed a program of Latin and Spanish music, including works by De Falla, Piazzolla, Villa-Lobos, Granados, Gnattali, and a world premiere arrangement by Argentinian pianist Fernando Otero. On January 10, Jason and Inbal brought the repertoire to the Cartagena Festival Internacional de Musica, where Jason stayed for a week as a teacher in the festival's esteemed Master Class Program.

Between concerts and masterclasses at the festival, Jason recently arranged an impromptu tribute to the late David Bowie, recording "Space Oddity" at his hotel room in Cartagena. Watch the video here.

Jason has a packed schedule of solo concerts in the coming months and will be presented by several chamber series: the Howland Chamber Music Circle on January 31, Del Valle Fine Arts on February 13, the Kerr Cultural Center at Arizona State University on February 16, the Fraser Valley Acoustic Guitar Festival on February 27, the Museum of Fine Arts Guitar Festival in St. Petersburg, FL on March 20, Fort Worth Classic Guitar Society on April 7, Allegro Guitar Society of Dallas on April 8, the Placitas Artists Series on April 10, and Seattle Classic Guitar Series on May 14.

In the coming months Jason is also busy with chamber music concerts and as a soloist with major orchestras.

New Jersey's Symphony in C hosts Jason for Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez on February 6. He will also join the Escher String Quartet for concerts at the Coleman Chamber Music Association on February 21 and Concerts International Memphis on February 23. On March 15, Jason will be at the Otterbein University Guitar Festival for a free concert and on March 25, he will perform in the East Coast premiere of composer Ian Krouse's Music In Four Sharps at Curtis Institute of Music.

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center presents Jason on April 28th with world-class CMS musicians in a program including Vivian Fung's Twist for Violin and Guitar with violinist Kristin Lee , with whom Jason first premiered the piece in 2014.

In May, Jason will head to the California Symphony for the world premiere of a new work by composer Dan Visconti, who was awarded the prestigious Serge Koussevitzky Music Foundation commission by the Library of Congress to write the piece. Jason and the California Symphony, led by Donato Cabrera, will perform Living Language on May 6 and 7.

Wishing everyone a great start to 2016. We hope to see you at Jason's concerts this winter and spring!
