Dawn Harms' Musical Adventure

Date: Sun May 1, 2011 4:00pm

Violinist Dawn Harms (member of the San Francisco Opera Orchestra, the New Century Chamber Orchestra, and the Oakland East Bay Symphony) performs her entertaining one-woman family show across the U.S., to squeals of delight and smiles of pleasure.

This highly interactive concert offers the audience many opportunities to participate. Some may compose music, while others will have the chance to play the violin for the first time.

Harms leads the audience on an energetic musical adventure that spans more than 300 years, from the music of Bach and Mozart to contemporary composers. If she plays something from her new CD The Hot Canary, watch out, the yellow feathers will fly!
