WHAT IS CHAMBER MUSIC DAY . LIVE + FREE ?
Chamber Music Day 2012 will take place on Sunday, November 18th at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts - from noon to early-evening. Throughout the day there will be performances on the two main stages: twenty-four professional small ensembles playing music ranging from classical to the latest avant-garde music, from early baroque to living composers, from jazz and improvisation to crossover music that bridges genres and cultures. The Screening Room will present nine film makers, whose collaboration with nine composers and live ensemble performances offer a feast for both the ears and eyes. In the Young Artist At Work Lounge, 6 youth ensembles will present "Next Generation." In addition, local chamber music presenting organizations are invited to publicize their upcoming 2012-2013 seasons and visitors can learn about the extraordinary range of small ensemble concerts in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. Admission to Chamber Music Day is free to the public.
Chamber Music Day offers musicians, local chamber music presenting organizations and audiences an unusual opportunity to gather at one venue in a casual atmosphere. Programs are presented in half-hour segments and are organized so that audience members are encouraged to move from venue to venue within the museum, enjoying a variety of musical styles and enhancing their overall experience by discovering unfamiliar repertoire, genres or ensembles.
