Originally from Mexico City, Ivan Resendiz began his study of classical guitar at age 16 at La Escuela Superior de Musica del Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes in Mexico with teacher Alejandro Mendez. Mr. Izquierdo has participated in numerous national and International guitar competitions alike, receiving top prizes in more than 13 competitions including South Carolina Guitar Competition and Boston Guitar Fest, to name a few. Ivan has performed in Mexico, France, Spain, Europe and the U.S. in festivals including Musica en Compostela in Santiago de Compostela, Spain and Festival del Museo Nacional del Virreinato in Mexico.
In 2011, Ivan Resendiz founded the First Latin American Guitar Festival in Chicago. The festival offers concerts, workshops and conferences to the Latin American Community in Chicago and continues to achieve its goal of bringing classical music to the immigrant community of Chicago.

Daniela Rossi is an exciting classical guitarist from Argentina. She studied under Eduardo Gonzalez Velasco at the Conservatory of Bahia Blanca, her hometown, where she graduated in 2006. Her orchestral debut was at the age of 21 in México, performing the Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquín Rodrigo with the University of Hidalgo Symphony Orchestra.  She went on to perform Rodrigo's Concierto in Argentina with the Bahía Blanca Symphony Orchestra , in Chile with the Chile Symphony Orchestra, and in London’s Kings Place with Newham Philharmonic. Currently based in Cambridge, UK, Daniela regularly performs in Latin America, Europe and the UK in solo recitals, duets and ensembles. Daniela is comfortable with music from all periods. She is particularly interested in the music of romantic composer Guilio Regondi, and as a result, has recently recorded a CD featuring Regondi's works, including the Etudes.
