Devin Kosloff

Classical Guitar Virtuoso


Devin Kosloff is a classical guitarist currently based in Portland, Oregon
receiving his Master's degree in performance under composer/performer Bryan Johanson
and Jesse McCann, two members of the internationally recognized Oregon Guitar Quartet.
With a background in jazz, rock, and video games Devin seeks to broaden the appeal of
classical guitar by focusing on under-recognized and contemporary composers who bring
elements of each of those styles to their music. This playful repertoire lends to his goal of
creating an intimate but lighthearted experience for the audience which will encourage further
listening to this wonderful instrument.

Here are some examples of what we're in store for from Devin.
For a real treat scroll down to the one called Tango en Skai

***** Special Request *****
Many of our visiting performers are in need of a place to stay when they come to play.
Any House Concerteers with the wherewithall to take home a musician can count on,
not only free admission, but the scintillating company of a disciplined and conscientious
student of their chosen musical tradition. Let me know if this is a possibility.


Imagining what a House Concert featuring one tune from each of our performers over the entire year might sound like, I've lined up one example of what each of our performers have provided us over the past year. To be sure, there have been a couple of evenings that missed being recorded and I hope your favorite was not among them. I also hope you can do without titles as announcements are not always intelligible on the recordings. Click on each of these links to access the audio files.

for which doors will open an hour before the music starts.
