Featuring two newly commissioned works by Bay Area composers, this program features pieces evoking moods both calm and stormy, with Italian volcanoes, Brazilian rainforests, Japanese seas, English forests, New York rain showers, French spring mornings, and California canyons.

The Bernal Hill Players is a gleefully eclectic chamber music ensemble formed in 2008 that performs classical and contemporary chamber music from around the world, as well as newly commissioned pieces by Californian and Mexican composers. They like music with strong local flavors, and their mission is to foster intercultural creative connections between composers, performers, and audiences.
