I’m Performing with the Cornelius Cardew Choir at the San Francisco Public Library on May 17th…

Interior of the Main Branch of the San Francisco Public Library.

San Francisco Public Library, Main Branch—Koret Auditorium

On Sunday, May 17th, from 2:00-4:00 p.m., the Cornelius Cardew Choir will present new music choral works at the Koret Auditorium of the San Francisco Public Library, Main Branch, at 100 Larkin St. (at Grove) in San Francisco, as part of the library’s music series. The choir engages audiences and each other with surprising vocal sounds and innovative music making. I’ll be performing as a member of the group, which crosses boundaries between what we consider “music,” “sound art” and “text” and often features original compositions by choir members and other contemporary composers of recent decades. This particular performance will also include the use of percussion instruments and found object props, plus text from various sources.

The program will include works by Pauline Oliveros, Sam Richards, and Cardew Choir member Sarah Rose Stiles. The list of performers for this event includes Bay Area musicians, composers and vocalists:

Rachel Wood-Rome
Tony Williams
Eric Theise
Sarah Rose Stiles
Katherine Setar
Jaime Robles
Bob Marsh, co-founder
Marianne Tomita McDonald
Cathryn Hrudicka
Brad Fischer
Tom Bickley, co-founder and director
Nancy Beckman

The price is right—admission is free.

About the Cornelius Cardew Choir…

Founded in 2001, the Cornelius Cardew Choir is a vocal performance ensemble based in the San Francisco Bay Area.  The choir represents an exciting intersection of community and experimental music, brought together by a love for singing and sound. All choir members are free to make suggestions about how to perform a specific piece, while honoring the intention of the composer, or experimenting with a new approach to singing.

The next performance for the Cornelius Cardew Choir will be on the Summer Solstice, June 21st, between 5:00-9:00 p.m., at the annual Bay Area New Music walk-through performance event, Garden of Memory, held at the historic Julia Morgan-designed columbarium, the Chapel of the Chimes, in Piedmont, California.
