San Francisco's Home for Great Concerts since 1970

A Sweeter Music

Sarah Cahill, recently called “fiercely gifted” by the New York Times, performs new compositions written on the theme of peace from her project A Sweeter Music, inspired by this quote from Dr. Martin Luther King: “We must see that peace represents a sweeter music, a cosmic melody that is far superior to the discords of war.” Composers include Terry Riley, Meredith Monk, Phil Kline, Kyle Gann, Michael Byron, and Ingram Marshall. Video projections are by John Sanborn, who has collaborated with such artists as Bill T. Jones, Van Halen, and Mikhail Baryshnikov.

Old First Concerts has volunteer opportunities available!
