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

Mad Queenes: Women on the Verge

FIRESONG ensemble
Soprano - Vanessa Langer
Piano - Margaret Halbig
Clarinet - Sophie Huet

Mad Queenes: Women on the Verge explores the maddening highs and lows of women in the throes of passion through the music of Schoenberg, Messiaen and Ned Rorem.

FIRESONG is a Bay-Area based ensemble dedicated to innovative programming of the 20th Century vocal chamber repertoire and to the commissioning of the next generation of vocal chamber works.  FIRESONG follows its mission by putting the music of the past next to pieces of our time, both performing the masterworks of the chamber music canon at the highest level and expanding the repertoire through close collaboration with established and emerging composers.
