He has won an impressive number of top prizes in over 12 major international competitions, 7 of which are First Prize.

Dr. Bustos' Sacramento program will include music of Scarlatti, Legnani, Ponce, Piazzolla, Rojas, Askim and Renzi. A great blend of old and new, presented in the best listening environment in the county. Choose either a Saturday night concert or a Sunday matinee, 2pm. Tickets are $39 for front row only, $29 for the rest of the room, and discounts are given seniors, students, guitar society members and children 12 and under.
Your patronage of these concerts underwrites our ability to bring Isaac Bustos to local schools, connecting students with fine arts in music.
