August ’19 East Bay Shows

August 20, 2019

Yo Yo, Mah Homies!

More shows are happening! Please allow me to inform you on the details!

Wednesday August 21st 8pm Cosa Nostra Strings is playing at Strings! 6320 San Pablo Ave. Emeryville CA. This is a really special private venue and I think if you are going to see us anywhere, here is the ideal setting. We’re playing world premieres by Adam Theis and Keith Lawrence, in addition to the first performance of the unabridged version of my “Deep State” series. Do you like war? Me, I think we are fighting too many wars, selling too many weapons, getting too many innocent people killed, and generating too much wealth for a select few. Rehearsal today was truly magical, so please consider coming and telling your friends! Doors at 7:30.

Wednesday August 28th at 7:30 is Bach Project VIII: Cello Quartets, at the Musical Offering Cafe in Berkeley. 2430 Bancroft Way, Berkeley, CA 94704. Yes, that’s the 8th installment of this series of music by J.S. Bach! I personally love listening to and playing cello quartets, (4 cellos) and I also love Bach, so this is like, double-love! In all seriousness, the cello quartet is a unique sound that is truly fabulous in its rich tones and expressive potential. Joining me are Ed Baskerville, Misha Khalikulov, and Crystal Pascucci. We’re playing arrangements by deceased Bay Area Cellists, Collin Hampton and Laszlo Varga, as well as living Bay Area cellist Russ Bartoli and his friend, Peter Lang (see Bach Project VI), AND a few of my own arrangements! Putting a lot of work into this one.

Friday August 30th 7:30 is Glenview Classical Series: Britten and Purcell at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church of Oakland. 1658 Excelsior Ave, Oakland, CA 94602. Glenview Classical Series is getting CHEEKY with a night of British 20th century and baroque classical music. The program consists of works by two of the most important English composers: Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) and Henry Purcell (1659-1695). This ambitious concert will include pieces for choir, vocal solos, organ, strings, and oboe, including Britten’s 17 minute cantata, Rejoice in the Lamb, and his Phantasy Quartet; as well as movements from Purcell’s Fairy Queen and King Arthur.
