S.F. Chamber Players in Guest Concert Series

The San Francisco Chamber Players, Northern California’s premiere chamber ensemble, closed out the 2012-13 Guest Concert Series on April 21 in Angelico Hall on the Dominican University of California campus.

Chamber Players Dan Carlson, Joy Fellows, Amos Yang and June Choi Oh have appeared around the world as soloists and leading orchestra musicians. Carlson is Associate Principal violinist of the San Francisco Symphony, Fellows is Assistant Principal violist of the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra, Yang is Assistant Cellist of the San Francisco Symphony, and Oh, a Juilliard School-trained pianist, is chair of Dominican’s Department of Music, Dance and Performing Arts. She performed April 7 in the San Francisco Symphony’s Chamber Music Series at Davies Symphony Hall.

Together, the Chamber Players performed the works of Telemann, Franck, Beethoven and North Bay composer David Smith. Smith also presented a world-premiere work at the April 21 event.

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 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.

 “This is a wonderful opportunity for music lovers of all ages to experience world-class performers in an acoustically superior concert hall that’s easily accessible in Marin County’s backyard at a very affordable price,” Oh said.

The St. Lawrence String Quartet, which appeared in Carnegie Hall last year, pianist William Wolfram, the Del Sol String Quartet and members of the San Francisco Symphony have appeared in the Guest Concert Series this season.
