SF Chamber Orchestra: Jazz Dell’arte | Berkeley
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Founded in 1953, the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra has remained an active voice in the Bay Area music community, presenting free concerts with an ensemble of the region’s top professional musicians.
The rollout of an exciting new concert format, Maestro Ben Simon becomes your host for a 90-minute, no intermission podcast. Think of it as a cross between Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me and From the Top with games, prizes, Ben’s famous trivia quiz, and of course, great music.
Featuring a host of SFCO All-Stars, this engaging program will feature variations on familiar themes by Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, and more. With special guest Anthony Lane, luthier.
Free admission. Members entry one hour before. General audience entry 15 minutes before. Recommended for middle school-age and up.
