Join us for a free, online concert featuring the Bernal Hill Players, a San Francisco-based, eclectic chamber ensemble that plays classical and contemporary music from around the world. The group will present music for flute, voice, and piano.

Following the short concert, ask the artists questions about online learning at Community Music Center, the music performed, and/or their lives as performing artists. Martha Rodríguez-Salazar and Jennifer Peringer, the founding members of the ensemble, both teach online at Community Music Center and can answer questions about what it’s like to learn and teach music on platforms like Zoom and Youtube. Questions can be asked live or submitted ahead of time.

Martha Rodríguez-Salazar, flute and voice
Jennifer Peringer, piano

The Bernal Hill Players is a gleefully eclectic chamber music ensemble formed in 2008 that plays classical and contemporary chamber music from around the world, as well as newly commissioned pieces by Californian and Mexican composers. At the core of the ensemble are flutist and singer Martha Rodríguez-Salazar and pianist and arranger Jennifer Peringer. Over the years the Bernal Hill Players has included many different musicians, most recently CMC faculty members Rachel Condry and Annelise Zamula.

For the “Music to Our Ears” concert on May 29th, Martha and Jennifer are going to play about 20 minutes of music for flute, piano and voice, by three very diverse composers: C.P.E. Bach, Carlos Guastavino, and John Rutter. The Bach flute sonata offers the listener the reassurance and regularity of the German Baroque style. The songs of the 19th century Argentinian composer Carlos Guastavino offer a poetic exploration of themes concerning love, loss, and the healing powers of nature. The final piece on the program, from a flute suite by the mid 20th century composer John Rutter, offers the relaxation and good humor of simply beautiful modern harmonies and fun rhythms.

Allegro and Adagio from Sonata in G Minor, C.P.E. Bach (1714 – 1788)
“La Rosa y el Sauce” (The Rose and the Willow) and “Pampamapa – Aire de Huella” , Carlos Guastavino (1912 – 2000)
Prelude and Rondeau from Suite Antique, John Rutter (1945)
