The Davis Art Center presents its third annual Classical Guitar Ensemble Series, featuring four performances from February through May. Tickets are available at www.brownpapertickets.com; a limited number will be sold at the door on the day of the events.

The series kicks off Friday, Feb. 3, with the Santa Cruz Guitar Orchestra playing styles from Baroque and Romantic to ragtime and swing jazz on multiple guitars. Guitarist-composer Mesut Özgen, www.mesutozgen.com, directs the group of professional players, teachers and students.

On Friday, March 9, Trio 7 members will play on three extended seven-string guitars. The group will perform works by composers not associated with the guitar, including Rachmaninoff, Debussy, Faure, Moussorgsky, Gismonti, Bizet and “5 Pieces” by Sacramento composer Phillip Miller.

As a special treat, Trio 7, www.trioseven.com, also will play some popular movie and video game themes.

Mobius Trio performs on Friday, April 6. Matthew Holmes-Linder, Robert Nance and Mason Fish, who learned guitar under Davis music instructor Matthew Grasso, formed the group in 2010 after graduating from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.

Mobius Trio, www.mobiustrio.com, specializes in new music and expanding the guitar chamber repertoire. The young group already has collaborated with up-and-coming and established composers and performed last April at Washington, D.C.’s, Kennedy Center.

The San Francisco Guitar Quartet closes out the series Friday, May 4, with a program that will feature new music as well as the classics. The group’s style draws from a rich background of classical, world and ethnic traditions and improvisation.

SFGQ, www.sfgq.com, features David Dueñas, Patrick O’Connell, Mark Simons and Jon Mendle, also a former student of Grasso’s. Since its inception in 1997, the group has become one of the most sought-after classical guitar ensembles performing today, a news release said.
