Member events, updates, calling for member news

Our chapter members are performing in a variety of interesting and entertaining concerts and productions throughout the next month.

This coming weekend, February 10-12, Karen Gottlieb joins Opera Parallel in their production of “Flight”.  According to Tom Sutcliffe, The Evening Standard: “Flight is that rarest thing, a popular new comic opera… Dove’s music flies, the opera is fun, and people are going to love it.”   Performances are at YBCA Theater, 700 Howard Street, San Francisco.  For more information and to purchase tickets visit http://operaparallele.org/flight/

Also this weekend, on Saturday, February 11, Suki Russack and Henry Heines play Vaughan Williams and Strauss as part of the Redwood Symphony Orchestra Concert going on at  Canada College Theater, Building 3, 4200 Farm Hill Blvd, Redwood City.  For more information and to order tickets visit www.redwoodsymphony.org
