See also

Due to illness, mezzo Alice Coote will be unable to travel from Britain to San Francisco for her San Francisco Performances (SFP) recital scheduled for tomorrow (Friday) evening. Coote will be replaced by mezzo Sasha Cooke, who sang the leading role in San Francisco Opera’s world premiere of Mark Adamo’s The Gospel of Mary Magdalene last season. With this performance Cooke will be making her San Francisco recital debut, although she has been in San Francisco to perform with the San Francisco Symphony, as well as the San Francisco Opera. Her accompanist will be pianist Pei-Yao Wang. Cooke has prepared a program of songs in German (Hugo Wolf’s settings of poems by Eduard Mörike), French (Henri Duparc and Francis Poulenc), and English (Benjamin Britten, Aaron Copland, and George Crumb). Full program details may be found on the updated event page for this concert.

The concert will still 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. 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.
