Music from the Mediterranean (Oakland Performance)
Come with us to the cradle of civilization to explore the lively, lilting music of Turkey and Greece and to hear new music inspired by these traditions. Your guides, Kaila Flexer (fiddle) and Gari Hegedus (oud, saz, and other stringed instruments) of the musical duo Teslim, join the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra for an exciting program with unusual instruments, rhythms, and scales that will likely have you dancing in the isles—ahem, aisles.
Visual delights and audience participation make these fun-loving concerts a joy for all ages! Our Family Concert series introduces Bay Area children ages three through twelve to a wide range of classical music, setting the stage for a lifelong appreciation of this engaging art form. We also feature guest performances from highly accomplished youth soloists and community arts performers. And as part of our Side-by-Side Program, young musicians from the area’s best music schools and ensembles are invited to rehearse and perform onstage alongside our professionals.
Admission is free to all concertgoers! Seating is first come, first served (no tickets). Concerts are generally 45 to 60 minutes in length. Doors open 30 minutes before concert time.
Program is presented throughout the weekend in San Francisco, Oakland, and San Mateo. Vist sfchamberorchestra.org for our complete schedule.
