Neighbor Sheri brings news of a chamber music performance happening on Sunday:
Music on the Hill is a uniquely Bernal Heights organization — a community-supported chamber music non-profit dedicated to presenting high-quality concerts featuring Bay Area musicians at affordable prices. Since 1998, we have presented four concerts per season to enthusiastic and loyal audiences.
The artistic director and all but one board member live in Bernal, and 60% of the concert-goers live in the 94110. Bernal music celebrity Joan Jeanrenaud, former cellist of the Kronos Quartet, was a founding member of Music on the Hill. She performed in the inaugural concert that kicked off the series in 1998 and continues to be a frequent contributor and artistic advisor.
From 1998 to 2009, concerts were presented in St. Kevin’s Church on Cortland. In 2009 Music on the Hill moved its venue to St. Aidan’s Church in Diamond Heights.
We have an upcoming concert on Sunday, March 16, 2014 at 7:30pm. The Stern Trio is returning for another season with Music on the Hill:
Kay Stern, violin
Natalie Parker, clarinet,
Ava Soifer, piano
Kristen Brown, guest soprano
The program features a scintillating concert of mostly American & Bay Area composers, with a world premiere of “Up and Away” by Joan Jeanreneaud, “Moon Shadow & Tango” by Wayne Wallace, “Three Pictures of Hassidic Life” by Ernest Bloch, plus trios by Menotti, Schoenfield, & Milhaud.
St. Aidan’s is located at 101 Gold Mine Drive, San Francisco, across from Diamond Heights Safeway. Ample parking is available at the shopping center across from the church.
Tickets are $15 general/$9 seniors and students.
