Clarinetist Ben Goldberg to give a rare solo performance for SFP

See also

This past Monday I observed that one of the more unique events for Valentine’s Day would be a performance by the Ben Goldberg School at the Center for New Music inspired by the work indie songwriter Elliott Smith. I am happy to report that this will not be the only opportunity to listen to Goldberg’s imaginative work on clarinets of all sizes during the month of February. He will also be the “designated artist” in the Salon series of recitals presented by San Francisco Performances (SFP) at the Rex Hotel. This will be one of Goldberg’s rare solo appearances, which is likely to involve fresh explorations of some of his past work along with ventures into new pieces.

These Salon events are one-hour performances that begin at 6:30 p.m. The Hotel Rex is located at 562 Sutter Street, just off Union Square. Goldberg’s recital will take place on Wednesday, February 19. All tickets are $20. They are available at the door to the Salon Room at the Rex and may be purchased in advance through the event page on the SFP Web site.
