SFMusic Thursdays are an outgrowth of San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music's acclaimed annual event, SFMusic Day . Live + Free. This new bi-weekly series extends the reach of that celebration of the Bay Area's vibrant, eclectic music scene year-round. Small ensembles in the SFFCM community - excellent and ambitious performers of Early Music, Chamber Music, New Music, Jazz, and Creative Music - are free to present, on their own terms, concert programs in the uniquely intimate and accessible environment of the Center for New Music (C4NM).
Tickets : $15 General, $10 C4NM Members
Jewish Music & Poetry Project
Nanette McGuinness, soprano, Dale Tsang, piano, and Adaiha MacAdam-Somer (the Jewish Music & Poetry Project) return from their Hungarian tour to perform the world premiere of newly commissioned works, by Guggenheim Fellow Laura Schwendinger (“Kay Ryan Songs”), Bay Area rising composer Kurt Erickson (“The Beautiful Wonders: Songs to Poems by Gertrud Kolmar”) and David Garner’s Capriccio, along with music by Guggenheim Fellows Elena Ruehr and James Primosch, plus Sandor Vandor and Dallapiccola.
Please join Gestaltish for an evening of sonic exploration in celebration of their newly released EP. Embracing tonality, rhythmic integrity or the absence of either, this free-improvising ensemble traipses deftly through space and time offering audiences unique listening experiences.
Rachel Condry (clarinet), Gretchen Jude (voice), Jacob Peck (guitar) and Jennifer Wilsey (percussion) met while working with Fred Frith in the Mills College Improvisation ensemble where they connected in Deep Listening spaces. Since 2012, they have been shaping and exploring sounds to create evocative yet open-ended musical experiences. Using game structures as temporal architectures in which to play, Gestaltish deeply listen to each other and their surroundings, encapsulating sonic moments and reinvigorating the notion of free improvisation with unexpected instrumentations and intuitions.
Aaron Bennett's Horn of Plenty
Horn of Plenty is Jon Raskin – Baritone Sax, Aram Shelton – Alto Sax, and Aaron Bennett – Tenor Sax.
This all-star trio of Bay Area Creative Music stalwarts will be performing "re-engineered soundtrack music from Bollywood films, blues, original music [composed by Bennett] and perhaps some hard rock."
