See also

The featured soloist in the January concert of the 21st season of Noe Valley Chamber Music will be tenor Brian Thorsett. He has prepared a program with an extensive span of music history, ranging from Claudio Monteverdi at the threshold of the seventeenth century to the immediate present in the form of two world premieres by composers Brian Holmes and Peter Josheff, respectively. Instrumental support will be provided by Adam Cockerham, who will perform on guitar, theorbo, or baroque guitar according to the needs of the composition, as well as violinist Natalie Carducci, whose repertoire as a performer covers a period as extensive as Thorsett’s. Other composers planned for the program include Stephen Foster, Manuel de Falla, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and Rebecca Clarke, as well as an instrumental performance of the Largo movement from Antonio Vivaldi’s RV 540 D minor concerto, originally scored for viola d’amore.

This recital will take place at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 1111 O’Farrell Street (just off the southwest corner of Franklin Street), on Sunday, January 19, at 4 p.m. For this particular concert, there will also be a pre-concert talk beginning at 3:15 p.m. at which both Holmes and Josheff will be talking about their new works. General admission is $25 with a $20 rate seniors and $10 for students with identification; but, if purchased in advance, general admission is $22.50 and the senior rate is $18. There is no charge for children aged twelve or less. Advance tickets may be purchased online at a Brown Paper Tickets event page.
