Gregory Lawrence

A San Diegan for over forty years, during high school Greg studied violin with Mr. Margarito Ramirez. His early orchestral training included playing in Civic Youth Orchestra under the baton and tutelage of the brilliant Dr. Robert Emil, then concertmaster of the San Diego Symphony. Greg earned his Bachelor of Music in Performance at San Diego State University where he studied with Dr. Theodore Brunson (with an extensive background in the Suzuki Violin School) and Mr. Howard Hill. He later undertook additional post graduate work at the University of Southern California where he studied with Eudice Shapiro and performed with the USC Orchestra under the baton of Daniel Lewis. He also studied with Mr. Noumi Fischer at his studio in Glendale, CA.

Greg's professional performing career has afforded him a wonderfully varied background in many different kinds of music. He has worked with the San Diego Symphony, the San Diego Opera, the San Diego Chamber Orchestra, Starlight Opera, and the San Diego Comic Opera. He also toured two seasons with the Montovani Orchestra of North America.

In January 2002, Greg fulfilled a life-long dream when he founded the Cabrillo Chamber Orchestra, a professional San Diego based 12 to 15 piece ensemble that specializes in the glorious literature of the baroque, rococo, and early classical periods. In addition to performing the popular works of these periods, Greg's desire is that CCO will bring to life the vast amount of unfairly neglected literature as well.
