Mezzo Alice Coote to return to SFP with an all-French program

See also

When mezzo Alice Coote made her San Francisco recital debut under the auspices of San Francisco Performances (SFP) in April of 2010, she prepared a program entitled Speak Music: English Songs and Lyrics. Next month she will return to San Francisco to give the first concert in the SFP Vocal Series. This time her program will consist entirely of songs by French composers. This will amount to an impressive breadth of styles, since the composers she has selected will be Francis Poulenc, Gabriel Fauré, Charles Gounod, Emmanuel Chabrier, Reynaldo Hahn, Hector Berlioz, Camille Saint-Saëns, Pierre Bachelet, Claude Debussy, Ernest Chausson, Erik Satie, and Charles Koechlin. Her accompanist for this program will be Graham Johnson.

This concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, January 24, in the Concert Hall of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (50 Oak Street, a short walk from the Van Ness Muni station). Tickets are priced at $38 and $65. These may be purchased through the event page for the recital on the SFP Web site. This page also provides the titles of all the songs on Coote’s program. In addition, because this is the first concert in the Vocal Series, tickets for the entire subscription are still available for $135, $210, and $235 and may be purchased through a City Box Office event page. SFP may be reached at 415-398-6449 for further information.
