San Francisco's Home for Great Concerts since 1970

The San Francisco Holiday Guitar Ensemble

Since making his critically acclaimed New York debut at Carnegie Recital Hall, Lawrence Ferrara has performed nationally from coast to coast and internationally from Spain to Australia. Vocalist Helen Dilworth is known as ‘Doctor Diva for her dual renown as both a singer and voice teacher. Matthew Grasso is a rising classical guitarist, composer, and improvisational prodigy. Normally soloists, they combine their considerable talents for an evening performing compositions by George Frederic Handel, William Byrd, Fernando Sor, and Michael Praetorius, along with selections from the traditional Christmas, Holiday and Hanukkah repertoires.
