San Francisco's Home for Great Concerts since 1970

San Francisco Composers Chamber Orchestra

Ever have a tune you couldnt get out of your head? aThe composers of the San Francisco Composers Chamber Orchestra find themselves returning to Ernesto de Curtiss Return to Sorrento (1902) in Return to Return to Sorrento, evoking a sunny, post-El-Nino world of musical fact and fantasy from John Bilotta, Philip Freihofner, David Graves, Loren Jones, Phil Lockwood, Lisa Scola Prosek, Kit Ruscoe, Martha Stoddard, Davide Verotta, Erling Wold, and Mark Alburger. Also featured are Bilottas back-to-the-future Quantum Mechanic (semi-staged in co-operation with Goat Hall Productions / San Francisco Cabaret Opera); David Gravess relatedly-apocalyptic Tickertape; Philip Freihofner and Phil Lockwoods evocative Blade of Grass; Martha Stoddards enchanting Duo Concertante for Flute, Marimba, and Chamber Orchestra (featuring Bruce Salvisberg and Anne Szalba); Joness adventurous Lost Plateau; and Alburgers frenetic-erotic-violent Salome Suite.
