San Francisco Performances welcomes Billy Childs with QSF, Becca Stevens, and Alicia Olatuja to Herbst Theatre in March 2017. In Fall 2014 QSF joined composer-pianist Billy Childs at the Monterey Jazz Festival in the early days following the release of his album tribute to Lauro Nyro. Map to the Treasure: Reimagining Laura Nyro was awarded a Grammy in 2015 for Best Arrangement Featuring a Vocalist (for New York Tendaberry).

We are thrilled to announce that we have completed our search during which time we played with a number of extremely talented candidates. Thank you EVERYONE for expressing your interest in playing with us and for the time and energy you invested in preparing yourselves for the audition process. It was not easy and, frankly, we’re glad it’s OVER! Now it’s time for us to welcome Andres …
“I am so looking forward to this journey of making music with such a fantastic group of people. Chamber music has been a huge part of my life since I began playing the cello and now to play with such talented men is by far a gift. Thank you so much.”
Here we go, Andres! Looking forward to great music-making and good times …
