Jorge Morel is a classical guitarist and composer from Argentina. He is now living and working in New York City.
Morel's musical career began in his native country of Argentina and his father taught him the rudiments of classical guitar at age seven. He went on to study advanced guitar at the internationally recognized Academy of Professor Pablo Escobar in Buenos Aires and after graduating joined Mr Escobar in radio and concert performances.
Morel left Argentina to perform in Ecuador, Colombia and Cuba, where he recorded his first solo LP and was featured in a weekly TV show. Vladimir Bobri, then President of the Classical Guitar Society in New York, lent his recognition and support to Morel after hearing him perform in Puerto Rico. This led to concert engagements in California and Hawaii and Morel's eventual debut at Carnegie Hall in 1961. At this time, he recorded his second LP for Decca Records and subsequently recorded three more albums. Morel appeared at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall in New York, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Wigmore Hall in London, National Hall in Dublin and Suntory Hall in Tokyo. Over the years he performed in many countries including Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, France, Holland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Finland, Greece, Singapore, Germany and more.
