Feeling a bit camera shy


The acclaimed Oregon Guitar Quartet is an ensemble of four of the finest classical guitarists residing in Portland, Oregon. The group’s members Mario Diaz, John Mery, Jesse McCann and Bryan Johanson have been performing and recording their original and highly engaging programs for nearly a decade. Their recordings have received critical praise and have been featured on hundreds of FM radio stations across the globe. 

The group impressively demonstrates the vast musical guitar culture through their repertoire, performances and recordings. Their concert programs constantly change and feature some of the most exciting, original, and often daring arrangements for guitar quartet. The literature spans the centuries and covers a multitude of genres - programs feature works by composers such as Bach, Scarlatti, Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Albeniz and Granados as well as less traditional arrangements by composers such as Dave Brubeck, Bill Evans, Leonard Bernstein and Astor Piazzolla. Their repertory also includes original compositions by quartet member and renowned composer Bryan Johanson. Thanks to their ever-growing catalog and extraordinary skills, one is guaranteed to never hear the same program twice. Much of their recorded repertory is published by Les Productions D’Oz of Quebec, Canada and is regularly performed by guitar ensembles and guitar orchestras all over the planet.

The Oregon Guitar Quartet’s momentum is a force to be reckoned with. Their eighth album is already in the works with many more in the queue. Audiences everywhere agree that they are a true delight to see and hear. As a result, they are quickly growing as one of the most sought-after groups to perform at festivals and venues around the globe.
