Guest Concert Series welcomes "Trio of San Francisco"

The 14th season of the Guest Concert Series continued on February 22 with a performance of chamber music by the “Trio of San Francisco” in Angelico Hall on the Dominican campus.

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 “Trio of San Francisco,” a collaboration of musicians with deep roots to the Bay Area, featured Sarn Oliver, first violinist of the San Francisco Symphony, and cellist Angela Lee, a recipient of a Fulbright scholarship to study in London. Lee made her Carnegie Hall debut in 1994. She replaced Eileen Moon, Associate Principal Cellist of the New York Philharmonic, in the February 22 program.

Lee and Oliver was joined on stage by pianist June Choi Oh, who, like Lee and Oliver, studied at The Juilliard School. Oh, a Corte Madera resident, is chair of Dominican’s Dept. of Music, Dance and Performance Arts.

The “Trio of San Francisco” performed Haydn Piano Trio No. 39 in G Major, Hob. XV/25; R. Strauss Piano Trio No. 2 in D Major; and Schubert Piano Trio No. 1 in B Flat Major, D. 898.

The concert was 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.
