The Officers’ Club puts the “life” back into live music with free evening performances that invite you to move and mingle. Performances range from jazz to classical music from around the world, and are curated by San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music in partnership with the Presidio Trust. In the intimate atmosphere of a house concert, listeners can savor, lounge and learn as they wish. Guests move comfortably between Arguello, the destination restaurant and bar, and the performances in Moraga Hall, with opportunities to converse with performers and each other.

This year’s festival will highlight the ingenious and arresting work of Iranian-American composer and San Francisco resident Sahba Aminikia, who will serve as the festival’s artist-in-residence. Amaranth Quartet, Delphi Trio, and Mobius Trio, three of the Bay Area’s most impressive young ensembles to come out of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, will survey four of his emotionally poignant and musically rich works. This intimate concert will feature diverse works for solo piano, piano trio, string quartet, and guitar, and concludes with an informal conversation with Aminikia.

These are balanced by Michael Pisaro’s percussive-pure "ricefall" and Kate Soper’s voice-and-ensemble "Door" in a widely varied program suggesting any number of surprising mirrorings, contrasts, and conversations among these pieces and composers.

Join us in person or by watching the live stream as we explore the intersection between music and the political issues that we face today.
Whether or not you can attend the concert in person, please learn more about Project Homeless Connect, located at 25 Van Ness, at https://www.projecthomelessconnect.org and donate if you can!

PEV offers its trademark blend of traditional and contemporary of music for the holiday season, together with Amaranth String Quartet. At the center of the program are several Baroque gems: The third cantata from J.S. Bach’s glorious Christmas Oratorio, select Christmas interpolations from Bach’s Magnificat, and Heinrich Schutz’s rarely heard storytelling masterpiece, “The Story of the Birth of Jesus Christ.” The Gloria by Sonoma county composer John Maas brings the musical celebration home to the Bay Area, along with other contemporary and traditional works.
One Found Sound is a conductorless, collaborative chamber orchestra on a mission to break down the barriers of the classical music stigma; to bring it back to its glory days of boisterous audiences and the thrill of discovering something new with each note.
