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.
For pianist, composer and Guggenheim fellow Myra Melford, the personal and the poetic have always been intimately connected. Raised outside Chicago in a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, Melford grew up literally surrounded by art, seeing early on that aesthetic expression could both be built from and be a structure for profound emotions. Her work draws inspiration from a vast spectrum of cultural and spiritual traditions and artistic disciplines. Recent projects include the multimedia Language of Dreams for her ensemble Snowy Egret; a duo with clarinetist Ben Goldberg; and Trio M with bassist Mark Dresser and drummer Matt Wilson.
