Billy Childs Reimagines Laura Nyro

BillyChildsSan Francisco Performances welcomes Billy Childs with QSF, Becca Stevens, and Alicia Olatuja to Herbst Theatre on March 4, 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).
