Chamber quintet performing in Guest Concert Series March 20

The 15th season of the Guest Concert Series at Dominican University of California comes to close on March 20 with a Chamber Concert special performance in Angelico Concert Hall featuring four prominent San Francisco Symphony musicians and Juilliard School-trained pianist June Choi Oh, who is the Chair of the Music, Dance and Performing Arts Department at Dominican.

The Sunday concerts, sponsored by Dominican’s Department of Music, Dance and Performing Arts, start at 3 p.m. Free parking is available in the nearby Conlan Center lot off Grand Avenue in San Rafael.

The Chamber Concert quintet will feature the husband and wife team of Sarn Oliver and Mariko Smiley from Mill Valley, first violinists for the San Francisco Symphony, plus San Francisco Symphony violist Nancy Ellis of Tiburon and Margaret Tait, who joined the San Francisco Symphony as a cellist in 1974. They will join June Oh on stage to perform Barber's String Quartet, Op. 11, Debussy's String Quartet, Op. 10, and Brahms’ Piano Quintet in F Minor, Op. 34.|

The concerts are free to students under the age of 18 including middle school and elementary school children if accompanied and supervised by an adult. In addition, community college students with a valid I.D. and music and art teachers in grades K-12 will be admitted free of charge along with Dominican faculty, staff and students with a valid I.D.
