Jazz and classical guitarists Francesco Buzzurro and Richard Smith will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 3, at Paschal Winery, 1122 Suncrest Road, Talent.

Buzzurro, who was born in Taormina, Italy, began playing guitar at age 6. He attended the Conservatory of Trapani in Italy and studied guitar with Stefano Palamidessi. The guitarist has an original way of improvising on a nylon-string guitar by combining elements of flamenco, Latin music and bossa nova, a Brazilian style of music.

Smith is jazz guitarist based in Los Angeles. He is the chairman of the Studio and Jazz Guitar Department at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music.

Tickets cost $10, $5 for students. Call 541-488-3869 or e-mail info@siskiyouinstitute.com for reservations.
