 About Today’s Performer

ROBERT WETZEL, born of Dutch and Indonesian lineage, began serious study of the classical guitar at age 15. In 1972, he began several years of private studies with maestro guitarist Angel Romero, followed by private guitar study with maestros Pepe Romero and Celedonio Romero.  He still considers himself to be a pupil of the Romero family and often states, “The master-disciple relationship is a lifelong affair.”

Wetzel frequently performs as a soloist, and with orchestral and chamber music groups. He currently resides in San Diego County where he is on the music faculties of Point Loma Nazarene University, San Diego State University, and the University of California, San Diego Extended Studies.
