A little history of Berto and his music. Berto has been playing flamenco guitar professionally for 25 years. He began his work as a music teacher and then ran two music booking companies (BertoFlamenco Productions and Boyd Music Services) where he booked music and bands for private parties, celebrity clients and many corporations. Currently, is the Artistic Director of the Corvallis Guitar Society and the musical Director of Flamenco Pacifico.

One of the projects I am proud to be a part of with maestro Jose Luis de la Paz. Avalon is a Suite written for flamenco guitar and symphony orchestra with orchestrations by Alex Conde. Suite Avalon was premiered at the Miami Dade Auditorium in 2017.
