Classical Guitar Project at monca
Saturday, March 7, 7:30pm
The next performers in the ongoing Classical Guitar Project at monca are David Gonzales and Matthew Fish.
David Gonzales and Matthew Fish first met in the studio of Sérgio Assad while pursuing their Master’s Degrees at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Upon graduation they began to work together as members of the renowned San Francisco Guitar Quartet. With a shared passion for ensemble playing, Matthew and David began to explore chamber music with two guitars. Playing with a synergy from years of performing together, they each bring their own unique style and experience to create exciting programs featuring lesser known repertoire and original arrangements for two guitars.
