Originally starting as a duo on the piano, the Park Brothers transformed into a duo on two guitars. Both Alex and Wesley Park started their music education on the piano at an early age, then began their guitar studies in their teen years. As they both studied classical guitar at Pepperdine University under Christopher Parkening, who is celebrated as one of the world’s preeminent virtuosos of the classical guitar, they came together as a guitar duo. The brothers enjoy collaborating and working together, as they complement each other with a natural synergy of sounds.
The Park Brothers have performed together as far away as Heidelberg, Germany and
Hermagor, Austria. They have participated in masterclasses from Christopher Parkening, Angel Romero, Andrew York, Jason Vieaux, Scott Tennant, Jubilant Sykes, and Meng Su. In the 2014 Pacific Guitar Competition in Monrovia, CA, they placed as a finalist in the chamber mixed division category. The Park Brothers guitar duo is signed under Jean Schreiber Management.
