Jacqueline Henry-Ross is a classical guitarist who lives in Northern California. She started to play the guitar at the age of nine and studied intensely under the tutelage of David Grimes, ultimately graduating with a Bachelors of Music Degree from California State University at Fullerton. Her most profound musical memories include having taken Master Classes with the world renowned classical guitarist Maestro Andrés Segovia.  In addition, she and her twin sister Patricia Turner were chosen to perform for him as a duo at a benefit concert in his honor at the “Coconut Grove” in Los Angeles along with the Brazilian guitarist, Larindo Almeida.  Jacqueline has been a featured performer throughout the Pacific Northwest, California, Florida and Mexico. Jacqueline has also performed live on the famous Hispanic television show Sábado Gigante.
