January 20, 2016 Open Rehearsal

Musicians, especially violinists and other strings, are invited to join the Bay Area Rainbow Symphony (BARS) for an open reading rehearsal on Wednesday January 20 at SF State at our regular 7:30 – 10:00 p.m. time and place 1600 Holloway Ave, Creative Arts Building Room 153, San Francisco State University. BARS members, and any interested string players, will play through Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, Jennifer Higdon’s Dooryard Bloom (based on poem by Walt Whitman), and Dvorak’s Symphony No. 7, depending on what we have time for. There is no obligation to join the group — you are welcome to come play to see how BARS and you may fit together.

 

Trumpet, violin at the intermediate and advanced intermediate level and percussion players are especially encouraged to join us (though the wind sections are generally full, please still email recruitment [at] bars-sf [dot] org or fill in this form if you’re interested in joining).  You will have the opportunity to practice sight reading, to reconnect with old friends, to make new friends, and to find out more about playing with BARS.  Please RSVP if you plan to come by filling in this form

 

Future events this season include two special event performances at Davies Symphony Hall with the SF Gay Men’s Chorus, and two regular concerts in March and June. We will update our season schedule before we meet on the 20th with planned rehearsal and concert dates.

Davies Symphony Hall, 201 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94102 (Tickets)
 
Come hear the Bay Area Rainbow Symphony accompany the SF Gay Men’s Chorus in:

Tales Of Our City: Our Lives, Our Heroes

It was 40 years ago when author Armistead Maupin penned the very first article that became the international phenomenon of “Tales Of The City,” bringing the colorful life and times of San Francisco to the entire world. Maupin joins SFGMC for an evening full of stories and music about our home and its heroes, while revisiting this magical work of literature, including “Michael’s Letter to Mama.”
 
Act I includes excerpts from “NakedMan” the groundbreaking multi-movement piece originally commissioned and performed by the Chorus in 1996, which chronicled the lives and loves of the men of SFGMC against the backdrop of the AIDS pandemic. Act II includes excerpts from the wildly popular commissioned work “I Am Harvey Milk” by composer Andrew Lippa, which SFGMC premiered in 2013.
 
“Tales Of Our City: Our Lives, Our Heroes” also presents a world premiere by SFGMC Composer-In-Residence James Eakin. Accompanying the Chorus for the entire evening will be the Bay Area Rainbow Symphony.
 
Guest Artist: Armistead Maupin
