Martha Rodríguez-Salazar (flute faculty, voice faculty, and choir conductor) presents It Takes a Village with The Bernal Hill Players, which is comprised of Jennifer Peringer, piano; Rachel Condry, clarinet; Annelise Zamula, saxophone; Matylda Rotkiewicz, piano; and Sharon Wayne, guitar. It Takes a Village is a concert of captivating chamber music—from duos to quintets—by North and South American composers in diverse styles, including classical, folk, tango, contemporary, and experimental.

The emphasis of the program is on multiculturalism, women’s empowerment, and celebrating our vibrant local musical community. Repertoire features works by Pauline Oliveros, Eduardo Gamboa, Russell Peterson, Libby Larsen, Samuel Barber, Erik Pearson (CMC faculty), Robert Beaser, Arturo Márquez, and Astor Piazzolla.

The Bernal Hill Players started out in 2008 as a flute, clarinet, and piano trio. Over the years we have invited different people to join us on viola, cello, violin, percussion, guitar and  saxophone. We play classical chamber music, and music infused with flavors of other genres such as jazz, Latin, experimental,  and folk. We often play newly composed music, and sometimes commission new works from both Californian and Mexican composers. www.bernalhillplayers.com.

This faculty concert series is made possible by support from the Shenson Foundation.

2019-2020 marks the 25th Anniversary season of the Shenson Faculty Concert Series at Community Music Center. This series was established by the Shenson Foundation to support CMC Faculty as performing artists and ensure their work on stage is shared and celebrated in our community. Each year, the Shenson Foundation sponsors four free community concerts for CMC faculty music projects.
