Dawn Harms has lined up a fantastic group of soloists for next season including Sara Davis Buechner, an internationally renowned transgender pianist. She has performed with America’s most prominent orchestras: the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Saint Louis and San Francisco, and won the Gold Medal at the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition as well as the Bronze Medal in the Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition.

BARS is also thrilled to have the San Francisco Symphony’s principal clarinetist Carey Bell, as well as San Francisco Opera star Christine Brandes, the first “out” soprano in Opera News. Our guest conductor will be Michael Morgan, Music Director of the Oakland East Bay Symphony!
