Description

PRESIDIO SESSIONS – Friday Evenings at 6 pm

In the intimate atmosphere of a house concert, experience jazz, contemporary, and classical music, and enjoy opportunities to converse with performers and each other.Offered in partnership with the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music.

Lisa Mezzacappa is a composer, bassist, bandleader, and producer, called “one of the most imaginative figures on the Bay Area creative jazz scene” (San Jose Mercury News) and “a Bay Area treasure” (KQED). Her diverse activities include ethereal chamber music, electro-acoustic works, avant-garde jazz, groups from duo to large ensemble, and collaborations with film, video, sculpture and installation art. avantNOIR is a suite of compositions inspired by noir genre fiction – specifically Paul Auster’s abstract “soft-boiled” crime stories from his New York Trilogy of the 1980s, set in conversation with the West Coast hardboiled 1920s-era detective fiction of Dashiell Hammett.
