As a master of the classical guitar, Zac Selissen combines concert hall caliber performance with top-notch client communication and attention to detail. He's here to enliven your event with music, and handles every step of the process with care.

His fluency in a variety of styles--classical, jazz, ragtime, Latin and Spanish music, even a little rock when he's feeling saucy--makes him extremely flexible. Zac will work with you to find the musical blend that perfectly suits your event.

A little more about Zac:
As a member of Duo Symphonious, he was awarded the CMC Shenson Award for their original adaptation of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Ballet, and was awarded the Certificate of Honor by Mayor Gavin Newsom for their performance at San Francisco City Hall. With Tangonero he was awarded the CMC Shenson Award for their original stage production Malena. He has performed numerous festivals including the GFA Convention, Portland ValenTango Festival, Boston Tango Festival, and Cotati Accordion Festival, and has shared the stage with Grammy Artists Jeremy Cohen, Pablo Aslan and British pop sensation Jamie Cullum. He earned his Masters of Music degree in Guitar Performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music under the instruction of Marc Teicholz and has received coaching from Sergio Assad, Su Meng and Yameng Wang, and Peter and Zoltan Katona.

Zac is a seasoned veteran of both concerts and private events, from block parties to corporate cocktail parties to weddings, and he looks forward to bringing his music to yours!

Got married yesterday in the east village and Zac made it amazing! He played for our photo session, cocktail hour, and ceremony. He was wonderful to work with -- incredibly professional, easygoing, and so kind. He diligently followed up when I first made the booking, and had helpful suggestions, including original music written by a friend of his and all the wedding standards. Our plans changed because of the weather and he was flexible and willing to roll with whatever came his way. And he is a true artist -- Zac's music was beautiful and deeply felt by everyone there. So wonderful!

Two thumbs up!!! Very talented and professional! Wide repertoire of tango music. Also appreciated was the fact that Zac Selissen came in smartly dressed in a suit, was on time and was super nice and accommodating. He event went an extra mile by playing the requested score. All was appreciated. Thank you, Zac.

They were perfect! They played exactly the type of music we asked for and were extremely professional (not to mention exceedingly nice people). Nearly every guest came up to ask me who they were and to say how great they sounded. I couldn't have been happier.
