Patrick Rafferty

Classical Guitarist


The solo classical guitar is an ideal instrument for most any occasion, ranging from weddings to corporate events, intimate dinner parties to family celebrations. The sound of the classical guitar complements an environment with a warmth and clarity that never overwhelms the event or conversation.

I have 15 years of experience working as a professional performing musician in the Saint Louis area and  make every effort to to offer a repertoire that fits the needs and tastes of my clients and their events. I am comfortable playing a wide variety of styles and genres, including an extensive repertoire of standard pieces. I am happy to discuss your musical needs and the various stylistic options I can offer. You can hear several of my arrangements for past events by clicking the Audio tab at the top of the page.

Thank you both so much for making our service special. Great feedback. Was a pleasure working with you.
— Terry Barber, Executive Director, Artists for a Cause
